FOX Webcast: Compromise or Conflict? Managing Intergenerational Consensus Building Around Philanthropy - December 15, 2021


Wednesday, Dec 15, 2021 - 10:00am to 11:00am CST


Please join us on Wednesday, December 15, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am CT, for a live interactive webcast with FOX members and subject matter experts.

As the largest intergenerational wealth transfer in history unfolds during a time of rapid technological, climate, and social change, some families view philanthropy as a way to build family cohesion and teach younger members a sense of responsibility. Philanthropy can be a unifying force – but it can also lead to conflict as families work to balance legacy, change, and personal relationships. Thoughtful and effective family philanthropy is often a balancing act between collective and individual motivations, the legacy of the past and the needs of today, as well as responsibility to family and connection to community.

Join us as speakers discuss case studies of next generation donors who are charting their philanthropic journeys and working to navigate challenging conversations with their families.

Attendees will be able to:

• Discover how to build consensus to achieve a cohesive philanthropic vision
