There are a number of questions to explore to ensure the success of a collective giving effort. What are the anticipated moments of transition? What are the plans to navigate accordingly? Who is best suited—and prepared—to lead the family philanthropy effort moving forward? Is there a clear plan for succession and healthy transitions? In this webinar, learn how families have managed successful transitions and explore the necessary steps to prepare the family philanthropy for the inevitability of change.
