About this grant

The National Center for Family Philanthropy promotes philanthropic values, vision, and excellence across generations of donors and donor families. The grantee ensures that family donors and their advisors have access to the highest quality information and the encouragement needed to articulate, pursue, and achieve their charitable missions; understand and meet their governance and management needs; and have a significant, positive impact on the lives and work of those they support. Since 1997, the grantee has done this through conducting research, developing and providing knowledge resources, training, and consulting on family philanthropy issues. During 2012-2013, the grantee will increase its outreach to community foundations and other donor-advised fund managers; offer a trustee education program; establish relationships with financial institutions; assist non-United States donor support organizations; expand partnerships with other philanthropic infrastructure organizations; and complete work on the revision of "Splendid Legacy," a seminal 10-year old guide to creating a family foundation.
