Family Philanthropy Online Knowledge Center

At Philanthropy New York, we recognize the unique strengths and challenges of our family foundation members. For this reason, we are pleased to offer a member benefit tailored to your specific needs.

Family foundation staff and trustees have free access to the National Center for Family Philanthropy's (NCFP) monthly webinars and online knowledge center, a collection of articles, case studies, profiles, research reports, discussion papers and archived webinars specific to issues relevant to family foundations.

NCFP's monthly webinars, which are typically offered on the second Thursday of each month, address topics such as:

  • Sharing the joys and importance of family philanthropy with the next generation
  • Managing conflict and family dynamics in decision-making 
  • Understanding the legal and ethical necessities of family philanthropy
