Join colleagues from across the Midwest and beyond for four webinars designed for staff and/or trustees affiliated with non- or small-staffed family foundations eager to find new ways of thinking smarter and performing better when it comes to their grantmaking. 

This webinar series is presented in collaboration with Indiana Philanthropy Alliance (IPA), Philanthropy Ohio (POH), Council of Michigan Foundations (CMF), and Minnesota Council on Foundations (MCF). Together, these regional associations hope to harness and share the collective expertise of each state’s leading philanthropic organizations and trusted community partners.

Is Your Family’s Philanthropy Ready for the Future?
Family funds and foundations serve two purposes - to fulfill a philanthropic mission and to keep family members connected to each other and family legacy. Current trends in philanthropy and society will challenge both of those purposes. This session will look at some of those trends and how philanthropic families may need to adapt their strategies for governance, family engagement, and giving vehicles.​

The program will offer ideas for adapting governance, family engagement, and operational strategies to successfully navigate current trends and changes in philanthropy and society. The event features Tony Macklin, CAP®, a chartered advisor in philanthropy who has led a national family foundation and has experience working with donors within a community foundation.
