About this event

Philanthropy Northwest members get access to all National Center for Family Philanthropy (NCFP) programs through our reciprocal membership. If you aren't sure whether you have an active membership to NCFP, contact Elyse Gordon to confirm.

Based on an upcoming strategy guide of the same name, this webinar will help you revisit your foundation’s role as an investment steward. It will introduce the surprisingly wide spectrum of equally valid choices endowed foundations have made in balancing permanence, purpose and payout. And it will provide ideas for helping your own board or family thoughtfully answer “How much should we spend?” This event is co-sponsored by the Council on Foundations and the National Center for Family Philanthropy.
