Spark Session: Advising Business-Owning Families
Tuesday, September 14, 2021 | 2:00 PM EDT
Co-sponsored by NCFP, Adnet, and Foundant exclusively for AdNet Members

Business-owning families are an important customer for community foundations. Compared to non-entrepreneurs, business founders give and volunteer more, tend to see philanthropy as a more important to their lives, and tend to ask more sophisticated philanthropic planning questions. How can community foundations better support those founders in developing plans for meaningful, effective philanthropy in both their families and their businesses? And how can community foundations better help employees and family members navigate the intersections between business, family, and community roles?

This webinar will feature perspectives from a family business consultant and community foundation staff to help your hone your value proposition for business-owning families.
