What does it mean to be a family philanthropy leader in today’s world: How do you balance your commitment to the donor’s legacy and the family’s shared vision with the immediate needs of the communities you serve? How do you manage the power and privilege of your position as you work with communities and grantees on the front lines of systems change? How can you “show up” in meaningful ways and ensure you and your foundation are accountable to the causes and communities you serve? And what is your responsibility for sharing what you’ve learned with others? Join this timely and essential conversation with NCFP Fellows grappling with these and other related issues.
