Throughout this year, NCFP is taking an in-depth look at transitions that occur in giving families and family foundations. This month's webinar will look at the unique issues involved in spending down a foundation’s assets. The webinar will feature the stories of the Eckerd Family Foundation, which was established as a limited life foundation from the outset, and the Irwin Sweeney Miller Foundation, whose board of third generation Miller family members made the decision to spend down the foundation more than 50 years after its founding. The webinar will also feature the advice and perspectives of Tony Proscio, a philanthropy writer and researcher who is chronicling the spend down activities of the AVI CHAI Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies.
