Multi-generational engagement in giving provides meaningful opportunities to bring family members together to support mutual causes while giving back to communities and creating lasting change. We invite you, along with any members of your foundation and/or family, to attend GWP’s inaugural launch of our Family Foundation Network to discuss how to engage together as you build your family vision of impact and ultimately, your family legacy.
During this session we will discuss:

  • Building your family foundation mission statement – How do we identify a Core Family Vision built upon family values and beliefs?
  • Processes to identify the change you want to make – What do we need to do to get the job done?
  • Sharing accountability and responsibility – Given busy lives how to make it work with common constraints to each family member’s time?
  • Collaborative Governance – How can we engage all voices in family decisions?
