Family foundations offer some of the strongest values for philanthropic giving, and many of those values endure through generations of family involvement. What happens, though, when new generations want to alter the scope of family giving, or see different opportunities for focus areas? Values-Based Grantmaking in Family Foundations, presented by Peak Grantmaking, will cover the most common values for foundations and how they are put into practice, as well as the ins and outs of revisiting values to affirm or change them as the foundation evolves over time.
