About this event

Trust-based philanthropy often raises questions around the legal implications of the practice. Is it legally sound to give unrestricted funding to an organization that does advocacy work? What are foundations legally required to document in terms of reporting and financial data from grantee partners? What does the law require from boards of trustees? Is trust-based grantmaking putting my foundation at risk in any way?

If these are questions you or your colleagues have wondered about, this Trust-Based Philanthropy Project webinar is for you. We’ll hear from Jean Tom, Partner at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, as she walks us through the legal considerations of this practice and alleviates your concerns about perceived legal risks. 


This webinar is free and open to anyone. We especially encourage CEOs, trustees and CFOs to attend.
