While some families pay particular attention to their legacy of giving, and some focus on a particular issue or cause, many choose to limit their grantmaking to a specific city, state or region. Their hometown serves as both the family’s sense of place and commitment. Gratitude to a supportive community and a desire to give back mean developing giving interests along geographic lines. A growing number of family foundations have taken this commitment to geographic location to another level and made the strategic decision to engage in place-based philanthropy, dedicating the majority of their giving and personal involvement to a specific community. This webinar will feature the stories of families who have created place-based giving strategies at both the community and regional level.
A Philanthropy New York Collaborative Program with the National Center for Family Philanthropy.
