Faced with power dynamics issues, how do families ensure that their shared dream of philanthropy is reached?

GMA’s Mary Phillips will lead a candid discussion of Giving While Living: Founders at the Table – for founders and those who work alongside them – at the National Forum on Family Philanthropy in Washington, DC on October 18 at 2PM. Read the session description and complete program.
