It is a common challenge for family foundations—how do you engage the next generation to ensure the smooth transition in leadership when the time comes? Join this webinar to hear from the experts on national trends, data, and research on this topic as well as from your peers who have successfully engaged next generation leaders. (Michigan)

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.
