With family members often living far apart, what steps can families take to build familial identity and bonds that once evolved naturally from living in close proximity?

How can family members whose lives have taken different paths forge a genuinely collaborative team driven by a mission derived from and embraced by the family? How are families balancing the commitment to their foundation's "home town" and their growing concern for their own region?

This National Center for Family Philanthropy webinar will feature:


Using stories of families, presenters will offer examples of how they have dealt with such issues as: honoring the legacy of the donor; defining a mission that accommodates individual interests and needs of different communities; maintaining high standards of grantmaking practices and evaluation strategies; and allocating funds equitably.

Register online through the National Center for Family Philanthropy Knowledge Center. 


As a membership benefit, SCG members have complimentary access to NCFP teleconferences and webinars.
