Midwest Family Foundation Webinar Series: Is Your Family’s Philanthropy Ready for the Future?

Wednesday, July 26, 2017 12:00pm - 1:30pm CDT

Description: 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 webinar 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 webinar will offer ideas for adapting governance, family engagement, and operational strategies to successfully navigate current trends and changes in philanthropy and society.

Speaker: Tony Macklin, Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy®

Tony consults with donor families, grantmakers, and their advisors about purpose, use of resources, action planning, and learning. He is also managing the National Center for Family Philanthropy’s “Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network.” He previously served as executive director of the Roy A. Hunt Foundation, a multi-generation family foundation. He facilitated changes in visioning, impact investing, grantmaking, trustee education, and back-office management for the family. In twelve years at the Central Indiana Community Foundation, he led grantmaking initiatives, advised generous entrepreneurs and families, attracted $39 million in assets and co-investments, and launched a social enterprise. He currently serves as a senior advisor to the Impact Finance Center, peer reviewer for The Foundation Review, and trustee of Awesome Boulder.
