This session will explore the ins and outs of global giving and how family foundations can expand their giving portfolios to include both local and international causes. Hear recent trends across the world and learn from the inspiring stories of families who have been making a difference in communities across the world. Through their personal journeys, we  will explore more universal questions about their philanthropic giving, the interconnectedness of local and global approaches, and share experiences about the mistakes they’ve made and the lessons they’ve learned through their international philanthropy.
