Family foundations have always been a force in rural communities. Two major factors influence this consistent presence: First, the wealth of many philanthropic families was developed and generated in rural environments, in industries like timber, mining, agriculture and manufacturing. Second, family foundations and individual donors often maintain a presence in rural communities that extends across generations. Many of these legacy family funders are in their third and fourth generations, with younger family members maintaining close ties to the rural aspects of philanthropic investment.
As rural communities shift and change over time, family funders need to adapt strategies to reflect both community change and the evolution of family philanthropic interests. Join us for this session to hear how family foundations and donor interests are currently doing this in collaboration with rural communities.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
