Spark Session: Community Foundation Business Models for Family Philanthropy

Location Title: 
Webinar

Your community foundation wants to provide more intensive services to philanthropic families. But how will you define your customer segments and their goals? What unique value proposition will you deliver? What will be your goals for revenues and costs? And how will you define external and internal success measures?

The community foundation field is experimenting with a variety of answers to those questions. On this Spark Session, you’ll learn two community foundations’ contrasting business models for delivering family philanthropy services. Their stories will be part of a larger set of case studies NCFP is creating in 2017 for the upcoming Family Philanthropy Playbook. Speakers will include staff from The Seattle Foundation and another community foundation TBD.

Spark Session: Serving Families Who Use Multiple Philanthropic Tools

Location Title: 
Webinar

Philanthropic families are increasingly using multiple tools and strategies to achieve their goals for social impact. Creative examples from NCFP’s network include: a private foundation with funds at multiple community foundations, a donor-advised fund and impact investing portfolio, establishing a family foundation and a 501(C)(4) nonprofit or Political Action Committee, and giving through a family business and a charitable fund.

On this Spark Session, you’ll learn how two community foundations are supporting families who use tools and strategies outside of the foundations. And, we’ll explore how community foundations might need to alter their donor advising work to reflect the wider array of strategies donors may use. Speakers will include a staff member and a donor from the Orange County Community Foundation and another community foundation TBD.

FPN family foundation members can participate in this webinar free or charge as a benefit of FPN membership.
