Engaging the Next Generation in Family Foundations

At their best, private family foundations engage the family in shared mission while changing the world for the better. They can effect change in a small, targeted geography (like Kansas City, KS) or impact a broad issue that resonates across many boundaries (like funding HeadStart). Family foundations need expertise, infrastructure, governing documents, skills, and technology. Because these private foundations have a high degree of control and latitude, with only the family involved, the challenge becomes keeping the extended family—the second, third, and fourth generations—passionate, engaged and mission focused.
