Description

An increasing number of community foundations provide services that actively involve multiple generations or family branches in giving, granting, learning, investing, and/or volunteering together. They’re answering rising demands from donors and positioning themselves against competitors.

Offering these family philanthropy services requires investments in staff capacity, organizational culture, marketing, and more. How have community foundations made the internal case for those investments? How have they made the case to professional advisors and other partners? And, how are they measuring progress and success?

Two community foundations will share their journeys in developing suites of services, developing internal support, launching new services, and thinking about impact measures. This Spark Session webinar, and the recording and related materials, will be only available to NCFP’s subscribing community foundations.

What past participants say:

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.
