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.

Power dynamics are inherent in traditional philanthropy: a funder gives and a grantee receives. This imbalance has the ability to inhibit productive, honest partnerships and stymie successful outcomes. It is often difficult for a grantee to discuss their needs and concerns when their financial future is on the line. Funders must acknowledge these dynamics with grantee partners and learn how to responsibly navigate positions of privilege and power. In this webinar, learn how to build authentic relationships with grantees through trust-based practices and other approaches that will reduce power imbalances and lead to more effective partnerships.

Featured Speakers:
Anthony Richardson, Executive Director, Nord Family Foundation
Mailee Walker, Executive Director, Claneil Foundation
Melinda Tuan, Managing Director, Fund for Shared Insight
