Managing an individual’s interest is vital in deciding where and whom to give. That gets complicated for family foundations who are managing multiple perspectives that may or may not align with the original vision for their foundations giving. The program will discuss how to navigate and engage a philanthropic family with many divergent interests while effectively blending personal and family giving.
