Trends 2020 provides an update to NCFP’s 2015 Trends in Family Philanthropy Study, and includes new information on trends in areas such as transparency and community engagement, founder involvement, strategic lifespan, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in family philanthropy. The report shares national data on the policies, practices, composition, and future plans of a statistically representative sample of more than 500 family foundations. It delves deep into the emerging practices of newly formed foundations, as well as those formed more than 50 years ago.

This report is divided into several sections, each exploring key aspects of family foundation governance, management, and operations, as well as sections on emerging trends in the field and future directions in family philanthropy.
