This webinar, presented in partnership with the National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy, will explore strategies family foundations can take to engage more deeply in grantmaking that builds toward long-term social change. The webinar will draw from case studies highlighted in NCRP’s new Families Funding Change report, as well as the real life experiences of family members and trustees who have made the transition toward social justice giving. Participants will leave with a greater understanding of how social justice can be a unifying framework for giving – whatever a family’s ideological diversity.
