MCF offers this PowerPoint deck as a tool for educating your colleagues, staff, board or community members about the Principles for Philanthropy. Ideas for using this PowerPoint deck:

  • Use the whole deck to introduce all of the principles at a staff or board meeting.
  • Focus on one slide – one of the 8 principles – for 15 minutes at the start of a meeting.
  • Use the questions at the end of the deck to engage your team in discussing one principle – or the entire set of principles:
    • What principles / concepts resonate most with your foundation?
    • What principles / concepts do you think will feel hardest, most complicated?
    • Where do you want to learn more?
    • Where is there agreement, something to build on?
