Balancing Internal vs. External Missions in Family Philanthropy

Thu, May 14, 2015,
9:00am to 10:30am PDT
What is your family’s dream for philanthropy? Are you primarily interested in achieving a particular grantmaking mission? Or are you interested in creating an opportunity for family members to come together and strengthen family ties through philanthropy and service to others? For many philanthropic families, the answer to this question is not either/or – it’s both. Join the National Center for Family Phanthropy for this in-depth conversation with two family foundations that have found successful strategies for thoughtfully defining, measuring, and tracking both their internal, family focused, and their external, community focused, missions.

Featured speakers

  • Julie Fisher Cummings, Vice Chair, Max M. and Majorie S. Fisher Foundation
  • Doug Bitonti Stewart, Executive Director, Max M. and Majorie S. Fisher Foundationy
  • Linda Tracy, Program Associate, Tracy Family Foundation
