Most philanthropic families say they want the next generation at the table. Yet how do new trustees develop their personal values and ideas to contribute to the discussions?  And when and if the next gen has a sense of how they’d like to give, will the board actually welcome their perspectives?  How can your foundation actively facilitate this process? This call features two individuals who survived and thrived as next gen board members and now work with families and younger donors to encourage the creation of personal giving identities in the next gen. Hear their views and share your own tools, tips and questions on this ever-important discussion in family philanthropy.
