With family members living far apart, what steps can families take to build family identity and the bonds that once evolved naturally from living in close proximity? How can family members whose lives have taken different paths forge a genuinely collaborative team driven by a mission derived from and embraced by the family? How are families balancing the commitment to the foundation's "hometown" and their growing concern for their own region? Using their stories, this webinar will offer examples of how families have dealt with these issues, including: honoring the legacy of the donor; defining a mission that accommodates individual interests and needs of different communities; maintaining high standards of grantmaking practices and evaluation strategies; and allocating funds equitably.
A Philanthropy New York Collaborative Program with the National Center for Family Philanthropy.
