What is TFP ?

Through skill-building DSC01500workshops, action planning sessions and expert panel discussions, TFP equips young people involved in their families’ foundations or philanthropy with the relationships, skills, and vision to transform philanthropy for social change.

Participants will share experiences and address questions such as:
•    What strategies can I use to bring new topics to the table and strengthen my voice in family decision-making?
•    How does my relationship with my family impact the ways we give together?
•    How can I look critically at questions of history, legacy and mission?
•    How can I incorporate social change giving strategies into my family’s philanthropy?

“The CCTFP retreat allowed me for the first time to have some frank discussions about sensitive topics with people in an open, honest manner.”  – 2011 Retreat Participant

What will you gain from it?

  • A community of other young people, ages 18-35, involved in their family funds
  • Skills-building and learning opportunities through interactive workshops and plenaries ranging from Family Philanthropy 101 to Mission Related Investing.
  • Access and one-on-one time with experts in the fields of philanthropy and social change, including 21/64
  • On-going support and resources through the Resource Generation Family Philanthropy Program and participating organizations

“RG’s ability to create an open space to share ideas, reflect, connect and push our personal edges is so fantastic!” – 2011 Retreat Participant
