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.

Join colleagues from across the Midwest and beyond for four webinars designed for staff and/or trustees affiliated with non- or small-staffed family foundations eager to find new ways of thinking smarter and performing better when it comes to their grantmaking.

This webinar series is presented in collaboration with Indiana Philanthropy Alliance (IPA), Philanthropy Ohio (POH), Council of Michigan Foundations (CMF), and Forefront. Together, these regional associations hope to harness and share the collective expertise of each state’s leading philanthropic organizations and trusted community partners. 

By the end of each webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the concepts and strategies related to effective family philanthropy.
  • Learn with like-minded family philanthropy professionals in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, and Illinois.
  • Use tools and best practices to design and implement effective family philanthropic strategies.
