A Conversation Series for Family and Individual Philanthropists

The Maine Philanthropy Center is pleased to announce a special conversation series led by highly respected philanthropic advisor Peter Lamb, focused on the unique perspectives of small family foundations, individual philanthropists, and donor advisors. The conversations will address the practical work of philanthropy—making decisions, taking risks, and engaging the next generation—as well as how your philanthropy can enrich your family. How do you make your giving less of a burden and more of a joy?

Family Decision-Making

Guiding principles are a way of grounding your decision-making, to bring you back to those values that are most essential to you and your family legacy. Guiding principles can also strengthen your process and bring a sense of joy and accomplishment to your grantmaking. By reflecting on one or two of the most meaningful charitable contributions you have made, and why they have particular significance to you, you will begin to develop a set of fundamental principles to help guide your grantmaking
