CNJG is pleased to offer this program to family foundation members as part of NCFP's Fundamentals of Family Philanthropy 2021 webinar series, providing guidance on the core tenets of effective family philanthropy.

Family philanthropy is rooted in the act of collective decision making—one that is often codified in a formal governance structure. But what is governance and how can a family adopt its framework to effectively guide their philanthropy? Governance consists of three elements—principles, policies, and practices—that define who makes decisions and how decisions are made. Families that are intentional about developing a governance framework are better prepared for decision making and can work more collaboratively together. Learn about effective governance structures and explore the principles, policies, and practices necessary to ensure good governance in a family philanthropy effort.

Cost: This event is free for CNJG Members who are family foundations.
