Family giving serves two purposes - to fulfill a philanthropic mission and to keep family members connected to each other and family legacy. Current trends in philanthropy and society are challenging both of those purposes. And, families’ expectations and goals for both purposes will inevitably evolve. This session will look at some of the trends and offer ideas for adapting governance, family engagement, and operational strategies to successfully navigate the trends and changes.

Featuring Tony Macklin, CAP®, Coach to Foundations, Donors, and Organizations
A Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy®, Tony consults with donor families, grantmakers, and their advisors about purpose, use of resources, action planning, and learning. He is also managing the National Center for Family Philanthropy’s “Community Foundations Family Philanthropy Network.” He previously served as executive director of the Roy A. Hunt Foundation, a multi-generation family foundation. He facilitated changes in visioning, impact investing, grantmaking, trustee education, and back-office management for the family. In twelve years at the Central Indiana Community Foundation, he led grantmaking initiatives, advised generous entrepreneurs and families, attracted $39 million in assets and co-investments, and launched a social enterprise. He currently serves as a senior advisor to the Impact Finance Center, peer reviewer for The Foundation Review, and trustee of Awesome Boulder.
