Family Ties: Multi-generational Family Foundation Board Engagement.

The Nathan Cummings Foundation is honored to participate in a new report from the Center for Effective Philanthropy. The report was commissioned by the Surdna Foundation as part of their Centennial celebration and spotlights good governance practices among family foundations. The report features interviews with CEOs and family board chairs at seven large, multigenerational family foundations, including Nathan Cummings Foundation Board Chair Ruth Cummings, Vice-Chair Jaimie Mayer, and President & CEO Sharon Alpert. The report spotlights the governance practices and structures that family foundations have created to maintain family involvement; select, orient, and engage family members across generations; and keep the board and foundation focused on impact.
