SoCal Grantmakers

In partnership with the National Center for Family Philanthropy, SoCal Grantmakers invites you to join other Los Angeles-area family philanthropies on April 4 for a workshop on navigating conflict in family philanthropy.  

Conflict is often particularly apparent in a family philanthropy context. While conflict is a natural part of any relationship, family philanthropies must manage it well to ensure internal issues are not a barrier to impact. Join this workshop to enhance your emotional agility and your capacity to manage conflict in your philanthropy.

Throughout the workshop, you will engage in the following activities:

  • Identifying and discussing common conflicts that arise in family philanthropy.
  • Acquiring insights into optimal approaches for preventing conflicts, addressing them as they arise, and navigating through them.
  • Practicing intentional communication techniques with individuals with whom you have conflicts.

This in-person event will provide you with concrete tools for more effective family philanthropy and offer the opportunity to connect with other funders in your area.

Space is limited, and the conversation will be best suited for participants who meet one of the following criteria:

  • Trustee or executive leader (examples include: President, CEO, Executive Director, VP, COO, CFO) at a family foundation.
  • Family members
  • Donors

To register or for more information, please contact Monica Banks.

Target Audience

This program is open to members of Catalyst, Northern California Grantmakers, Southern California Grantmakers, NCFP, and eligible non-members.
