What participants said:
Every plenary and workshop addressed current issues facing private family foundations. I can't think of any outstanding issue that wasn't addressed. Given the constant change we face, I am confident that NCFP will identify new issues that arise and address them at future Forums.
The 2017 NCFP Forum helped me remember to keep asking the really important question – why do we come together as diverse families across generations and geographies, even life experiences, interests and learning styles, to do philanthropic work?
The National Forum on Family Philanthropy was a whirlwind of talks, ideas, conversations, and reflection. We are a cohort of caring people who want to improve our communities and the world. It's clear to me now that we have a lot of work to do to be more inclusive and intersectional but it's a relief to know that I'm not alone.
The National Forum on Family Philanthropy is the place to go if you want to meet and learn from families who are at all different points in their philanthropic journeys. NCFP provides a safe learning space, a friendly atmosphere and loads of resources for everyone who attends. One quickly learns the value of having access to the vast knowledge base on family philanthropy that NCFP has created over its 20-year history.
