2019 National Summit on Family Philanthropy

2019 National Summit on Family Philanthropy

Our Donor Journeys and Why They Matter

The fifth and final National Summit on Family Philanthropy was held in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on January 28 and 29, 2019, led by the Founding Frey Foundation Chair for Family Philanthropy, Michael Moody, Ph.D.

The event offered donors the opportunity to reflect on their philanthropic journeys, learn about the fascinating paths taken by others, and explore lessons learned along the way. Hear from donors about their personal giving journeys and watch all three plenary discussions from the 2019 National Summit on Family Philanthropy through Summit Replay.

The 2019 Summit marked the launch of the Donor Journeys Initiative, an integrated suite of projects to help donors evaluate and analyze their donor journeys. The initiative aims to advance family philanthropy’s understanding and maximization of diverse donor journeys in specific and complementary ways.
