Description

In philanthropic families, no subject generates more questions than preparing for and successfully passing the responsibility of a foundation or fund to successor generations. Family members consider issues both personal (e.g. self-identity, legacy, family roles) and pragmatic (e.g. timing, knowledge and skills required, differing work and decision-making styles).  

Community foundation staff can play a key role in smoothing those transitions in donor families, often helping families plan and prepare earlier than they’d do on their own. Opportunities for that support will continue to rise during this great intergenerational transfer of wealth. In this webinar, two community foundations and their donors will discuss their work together in managing a generational transition and the impact of the work on both the foundation and the donor family. 

Please note this Spark Session is only available to those that belong to the Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network. Not yet a member? Please contact community@ncfp.org for more information.

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.
