Transitions in family foundations, as in families themselves, can be challenging and emotionally fraught. Communication and timely planning can turn the inevitable transitions that all organizations face into joyful journeys. The particular transitions of board and leadership succession call for a neutral and knowledgeable consultant to partner with the board and guide the family foundation along its planning process.

In this webinar, learn how one family foundation, in partnership with consultants, has managed transitions, and explore ways to prepare a family philanthropy for the inevitability of change. Together, a consultant and the chair of a family foundation board will highlight the key moments of transition in family foundations, offer a framework and topline questions for consultants to use in discussing transition with family foundation clients, and offer examples from family foundations that have navigated board and executive transitions.

Consultants are encouraged to attend with a client.
