Philanthropy is often described as society’s “risk capital.” Private generosity can support causes and ideas that business and government agencies cannot or will not. However, the idea of risk in philanthropy quickly muddies as we direct our generosity through a family foundation, donor-advised fund, or other collective effort. Our ideas about - and tolerance for - risk diverge, shaped by individual, family branch, professional, and other experiences. This webinar, featuring tips from the National Center for Family Philanthropy's (NCFP) new Passage Issue Brief on this topic and the Case Foundation’s “Be Fearless” campaign to ignite a more fearless approach to change making, provides practical tools for generous families that want to assess, tame, and mitigate philanthropic risk and expand their comfort zone to embrace increased uncertainty in their grantmaking strategy.
