Advisors, regional associations and philanthropic networks

We work with advisors, regional associations and other philanthropic networks to provide essential, objective information about charitable options for your clients and members as well as access to cutting edge resources in family philanthropy. We recognize that advisors and philanthropic networks are essential partners in helping donors and families achieve their goals. We offer a variety of resources to help you engage donors in meaningful discussions about their giving goals.

Access 2000+ resources

NCFP's Family Philanthropy Knowledge Center is the world's largest repository of resources on family philanthropy. The Knowledge Center is a searchable, comprehensive and continually updated collection of more than 2,000 articles, case studies, profiles, presentations, reports, sample policies and discussion papers related to family philanthropy—and it's ready for you to download and use.


Make connections

Regional associations, philanthropic networks and advisors who partner with us receive invitations to special gatherings and webinars to connect with peers who share your interest in promoting and supporting effective family philanthropy. Our events offer a forum for discussions on what works—and what doesn't—while providing you with the tools and connections you need to understand and advise your family donors.


Learn online

Join our monthly Family Philanthropy Webinar Series for instant access to presentations by leading family foundations, family giving experts and thought leaders on topics related to family dynamics, governance, grantmaking, new trends in family philanthropy and much more. As a member of our network, you receive complimentary registrations to 12 exclusive Webinars each year as well as access to our library of over 110 past Webinars.


Enhance your events

As a member of our network, you are also eligible to have NCFP President Virginia Esposito make a presentation at an event or series of events in your community. Many associations also host informal gatherings of donors and advisors in tandem with our monthly Family Philanthropy Webinar series, or use NCFP materials as the basis for special newsletters and updates for families in their network. Your membership provides you with ideas for topics and new speakers for your audience.


Your peers say:

As a long time consultant to family foundations, your presentation on evaluating the family foundation CEO was the best I have ever heard. The research behind NCFP's work is superb and compelling. The presenters were excellent and the materials shared were useful for both family foundations and independent foundations as well.
