Webinar

Who should attend

Board members, staff, advisors, and donors in family philanthropy.

Description

Society is becoming increasingly divisive. What roles can family foundations play in finding ways to support meaningful dialogue across “party lines” within their community? Is this role appropriate for family foundations? What are the biggest mistakes that funders make when trying to provide a forum for these types of conversations? Join NCFP as we discuss these and other questions about how to support bettering society and communities.

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.
