Webinar

Who should attend

Community foundations staff and other colleagues interested in learning more about this special network, and ways to get involved.

Description

Philanthropic families are increasingly using multiple tools and strategies to achieve their goals for social impact. Creative examples from NCFP’s network include:  a private foundation with funds at multiple community foundations, a donor-advised fund and impact investing portfolio, establishing a family foundation and a 501(C)(4) nonprofit or Political Action Committee, and giving through a family business and a charitable fund.

On this Spark Session, you’ll learn how two community foundations are supporting families who use tools and strategies outside of the foundations. And, we’ll explore how community foundations might need to alter their donor advising work to reflect the wider array of strategies donors may use. Speakers will include a staff member and a donor from the Orange County Community Foundation and The Chicago Community Trust.

What participants said:

NCFP consistently and brilliantly presents the very best education to family foundations and donor advisor funders. Though I actively participate in educational opportunities with many organizations in the philanthropic center it is those offered by NCFP that drill deeper into issues, savor the nuances of family grantmaking and produce products that motivate and inspire in an all embracing understanding of families and the dynamics that challenge them.

The Family Philanthropy Webinar series is a wonderful resource, allowing us to "attend" sessions from all over and to share materials with other members of our foundation. The transcripts of the sessions are also a valuable resource. Thank you for these Webinars.
