Past Event Highlights

  • "The 2019 National Forum was a rich opportunity for family funders to learn, share, connect, and perhaps most importantly, question their own assumptions about giving and the potential of of philanthropy now and in the future."

  • "This was the most consistently substantive and interesting philanthropic conference I've attended, out of dozens in the past 20 years. Staff, sessions, attendees, attention to detail all were outstanding."
  • "We LOVE the Forum!!! Just keep doing what you always do--it is by far the best conference we attend."
  • "NCFP not only provided an opportunity to gain critical insight to effective grantmaking strategies but also a safe space for people to learn and share their experiences in a very warm and supportive 'family' environment!"
