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.

Jane Stabler, Putnam Foundation

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?

Susan DeWyngaert, Trustee, Lumpkin Family Foundation
