Community Foundation Spark Session: Family Philanthropy Services: Making the Case, Measuring the Impact

Location Title: 
Webinar

An increasing number of community foundations provide services that actively involve multiple generations or family branches in giving, granting, learning, investing, and/or volunteering together. They’re answering rising demands from donors and positioning themselves against competitors. Offering these family philanthropy services requires investments in staff capacity, organizational culture, marketing, and more. How have community foundations made the internal case for those investments? How have they made the case to professional advisors and other partners? And, how are they measuring progress and success?

FPN's family foundation members can participate in this webinar free of charge as a benefit of FPN membership. Community foundations that are NCFP subscribers are eligible to RSVP. If you are not a current partner subscriber, please contact community@ncfp.org for subscription information.
