Family Philanthropy Through Multiple Vehicles

Thursday, August 8, 2019
9:00am - 10:30am
Where: 
This program is a webinar.

SCG members receive complimentary access to NCFP webinars. Please log in to view webinar access information.

How can families with multi-faceted philanthropic efforts—those with multiple foundations or funds, who are also using impact investing and other creative strategies—develop governance systems and structures that accommodate this complexity? What processes are these “complex” families using to allocate available human capital to the various governance structures? What approaches are they using to address dilemmas of a unified versus diverse philanthropic agenda across different vehicles? And how are they managing family dynamics in these complex governance systems? This webinar will share early findings from a new NCFP study led by Lansberg, Gersick & Associates, authors of NCFP’s ground-breaking “Generations of Giving” study.
