How Do You Engage Family Members Over Time?*
Family members of different generations or branches may have altogether different interests, live in different locations, have varying levels of expertise, or slip into unproductive family dynamics when you get them in a room together. How can advisors foster a philanthropy experience that family members want to take part in, that keeps them interested and engaged (even having fun!) over time, and that actually produces real change for the community? In this lively session, we’ll delve into unproductive family dynamics, uncover what’s worked best in other families, and what participants can take home and put into practice.
