Family foundations come in all shapes and sizes – from small, unstaffed organizations to the largest foundation in the world, based here in our region. In fact, the majority of Philanthropy Northwest membership is made up of family foundations. We are committed to helping families meet the unique opportunities and challenges they face through tailored events, webinars and resource sharing.
While each family foundation is unique in structure and interests, all share in common the practice of engaging family members to carry out their value on making a difference in the world. They share in common many questions and challenges from governance and administration issues to grantmaking approaches to involvement of the next generation. Philanthropy Northwest creates a forum for family foundation staff and trustees to network and learn together.
