Fostering a Learning Culture in Family Philanthropy

Family foundations can be isolated institutions. Too often, trustees have few opportunities to learn how to do their jobs well; they rely on limited data sources, like grant applications, financial reports, and the occasional site visit. But there are learning resources all around us if we can just figure out how to use them. In this session, we will discuss strategies for creating a learning culture in family philanthropy–learning from grantees and the communities we serve and from our peers and fellow trustees. The result is better informed, more relevant philanthropy and a more engaging experience for trustees.
