In addition to a celebration of NCFP’s 20th Anniversary, the Symposium explored key themes, trends, and bold ideas generated over the year by the Imagining the Future initiative. We unveiled several new NCFP research initiatives including Pride of Place, a report exploring how boards stay true to the original geographic focus of the family foundation after trustees have moved away.  Should you have any questions or need assistance, please contact us at ncfp@ncfp.org or 202-293-3424.   Download a PDF of the Final Printed Program.
