Determining the lifespan of a philanthropic effort is one of the most important decisions a philanthropy’s board, staff, and family members make.

Would the philanthropy have more impact and better meet community needs by spending more or all of its assets in a limited timeframe instead of existing in perpetuity? How does a philanthropic family make this decision? What plans must be put in place related to grantmaking, investing, staffing, and communications while a lifespan decision is being considered and when it has been finalized?

Join us for this webinar to hear from family philanthropy staff and board members who can provide guidance on the critical questions to ask, how to go about making a decision on lifespan, and how to successfully navigate the spend down journey once that decision has been made.

And for those who would like to participate, we will have an additional 30 minutes of networking time at the end of the program.
