In addition to a celebration of NCFP’s 20th Anniversary, the Symposium will explore key themes, trends, and bold ideas generated over the year by the Imagining the Future initiative. We will also unveil several new NCFP research initiatives including Pride of Place, a report exploring how boards stay true to the original geographic focus of the family foundation after trustees have moved away.

What past participants say:

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?
