Ethical issues affect every facet of a family's philanthropy, from its structure and mission, to its investments, grantmaking strategies--and perhaps most importantly--governance structure.
The role of ethics and values is so integral to how families define and carry out their missions, and the expectations for ethical behavior among philanthropists so high, that it is easy to become overwhelmed or stymied.
How does a family successfully address issues of ethics in their philanthropy? Join this discussion with Dr. Rush Kidder, founder and chief executive officer of the Institute for Global Ethics and a long-time trustee of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, to learn more.
