Special Invitation

Since we have two family philanthropy programs on November 12th, we decided to make a day of it! Join Philanthropy New York staff and family foundation members for lunch at PNY from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM to watch the webinar, Families Funding Change, together. Then stay for this great session on demystifying legal guidelines for family foundations from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

Email register@philanthropynewyork.org to RSVP for one or both events.

Program Description

Too many seminars focus on what family foundations can’t do. Yet tens of thousands of foundations are doing incredible and creative work in pursuit of their missions. One of the greatest attributes of family foundations is their flexibility. Is your confusion about what the law allows holding your foundation back? 

Join us for a discussion that will help demystify the law and inspire you to do even more. Learn about how your family foundation can move beyond basic grantmaking, from grants to non-charities, scholarships, and international grants, to program-related investments (PRIs), and even advocacy and policy engagement.

A reprise of a session that took place in 2014, organized by the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers


Designed for

All interested funders.
