All families and family foundations are on their own journey, especially when it comes to when and how the next generation is invited into philanthropy and the foundation itself. Join this session to learn and engage in readiness measures you and your family foundation or donor advised fund can take to enhance intergenerational dialogue and philanthropic growth, regardless of age, for greater impact. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the development needed to engage multiple generations, a growth plan inspired by reflective practice, and their first next step ready to test.
