Spark Session: Serving Families Who Use Multiple Philanthropic Tools
Community foundations staff and other colleagues interested in learning more about this special network, and ways to get involved.
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.
We are pleased to offer representatives from community foundations that are not yet part of the Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network one complimentary registration to a Spark Session of your choice. To take advantage of this offer and register for this webinar, please complete our simple guest registration form.

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.
NCFP webinars are an effective way for me to be stimulated and educated. I always expect excellent presenters and up to date information from NCFP, and have not been disappointed with these webinars. The recent one discussing women and philanthropy was very timely as women grow in their capacity and leadership roles in philanthropy. Thank you NCFP!
The National Center has been an indispensable source of wisdom, tools, and best practices for my clients on matters ranging from advancing intergenerational leadership transition strategies to building effective websites to creating discretionary grant making guidelines.
These webinar events are the most valuable as part of our SECF membership... we access current experts on the topics pertinent to family foundations...and we remain in our office!.... no travel expenses or conference fees... and we can access this information at a future time for our Board. A win-win for all of us who are so busy but are eager to stay current and networked.
I have attended many of NCFP's webinar and always walk away with new ideas that expand my knowledge of family philanthropy. The content is always amazing, well-structured and full of different perspectives. I especially love the stories told by presenters of their families journey within philanthropy and how they are impacting communities.
Creating Effective Next Gen Boards was by far the best webinar I have experienced. The material was well put together, well presented, easy to follow, and very engrossing! The youth on the webinar were very articulate and experienced and provided a unique insight into the benefits and pitfalls in involving 8 year-olds and up in family philanthropy, i.e. the younger we start, the better and easier it is for everyone! Thanks for this webinar!
I have participated for years in the Family Philanthropy Webinar Series, which has been a tremendous value-add for our subscription to NCFP Friends of the Family! This just keeps getting better and better with each passing month, and I'm so very impressed with the caliber of presentations and the organization behind them! Best webinar series in the field!
