Presented by the National Center for Family Philanthropy

The criticism of wealth is longstanding and brings to the fore a conversation on justice that is important to reflect upon in the pursuit of effective family philanthropy. Though necessary, this type of reflection often raises a number of difficult questions that require philanthropic families to interrogate their history and reconcile the actions of their ancestors. Join us for a conversation on how families successfully examine their histories to move forward with a more equitable and just philanthropic effort in the future.
