Community foundations can be a trusted resource to philanthropic families. They help families solve practical issues such as geographic dispersion and anonymity. And they can provide deeper support for community problem-solving and family succession planning. However, community foundations vary widely in their goals and capacity and family members vary widely in their goals for working with other partners. In this session, you’ll hear from leading community foundations and family philanthropists about how their partnerships strengthen their respective missions, leverage local knowledge and resources, and help prepare future generations of philanthropic families. The session will also draw on the experience and trends research of the National Center for Family Philanthropy and its Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network.
