Resources from the 2020 Family Philanthropy Town Hall

Publication date: 
Monday, June 1, 2020

Never in recent history has philanthropy been called upon to respond so urgently to our communities in crisis. The scale of the pandemic has quickly moved families and funders to adopt new strategies and value our relationships more than ever before.

Over 150 attendees tuned in on June 3rd, 2020 for the Family Philanthropy Town Hall to hear from national experts and local colleagues on their strategies and responses to inspire and generate ideas as we begin to reimagine grantmaking.


Please find our growing library of resources from the 2020 Family Philanthropy Town Hall below.













These videos are great for youth and adults because they simply explain concepts, have engaging animation, and include captions.
