Philanthropic families are increasingly using multiple tools and strategies to achieve their goals for social impact. Creative examples from NCFP’s network include: a private foundation with funds at multiple community foundations, a donor-advised fund and impact investing portfolio, establishing a family foundation and a 501(C)(4) nonprofit or Political Action Committee, and giving through a family business and a charitable fund.

On this Spark Session, you’ll learn how two community foundations are supporting families who use tools and strategies outside of the foundations. And, we’ll explore how community foundations might need to alter their donor advising work to reflect the wider array of strategies donors may use. Speakers will include a staff member and a donor from the Orange County Community Foundation and another community foundation TBD.
