Join us for a review and discussion of National Center for Family Philanthropy's (NCFP) "Complexities of the Collective: Balancing Individual and Family Interests" webinar.

For many, family philanthropy presents an opportunity to create a shared experience, unifying the family by working together toward a lasting legacy of impact. Family philanthropy can also give participants an opportunity to explore and cultivate individual personal philanthropic passions

There is an inherent tension between these two goals, and many families struggle with how to address it—especially as families become larger and more complex over time. 

In this session, we will explore how families navigate this dilemma, including hearing from researchers who have examined this issue in a study of family foundations and from peer family foundations and donor-advised funds who have experienced navigating the tension between family and individual philanthropic interests.

This is a lunchtime event, so please feel free to eat during the session.

Thank you to the J&MK Fort Family Foundation for sponsoring PhilMO’s Partner subscription to NCFP that gives PhilMO’s Family Foundation, Donor-Advised Fund, and Community Foundation Members special access to NCFP webinars and other resources.
