About the Event

Our communities face many complex and interconnected challenges. Most require us to confront racial, economic, and other inequities. We’re also living in an era of massive wealth creation and wealth transfer. More donors have the resources to meaningfully address those challenges. But the how and now of their philanthropy matters more than ever.

Community foundations have an incredible opportunity—and perhaps a moral obligation—to help donors reexamine the purpose, pace, power, and practices of their philanthropy. This webinar will feature the experiences of community foundation staff who have built the skills to coach up to donors, artfully question their assumptions, and show them new paths to effective family philanthropy. You’ll walk away with tips and tools for a more insightful and influential donor advising practice.

Hosted by the National Center for Family Philanthropy (NCFP) in partnership with AdNET

This program is part of the Spark Session series under NCFP’s Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network. The series is designed for community foundations to exchange practical advice, tools, and tips from peers on aspects of their family philanthropy engagement. This content-rich webinar features peer case study examples and will allow attendees to delve deeper through an open facilitated dialogue.
