As an advisor, you want to attract, grow, and retain your clients—or risk losing them when wealth transfers to the next generation. You know that supporting your clients’ philanthropic goals is a great way to build and deepen relationships across generations. But you don’t always know how to have conversations about charitable giving. You worry you might not have all the answers and often feel “out of your element.” What’s even worse, your clients suffer from “delusional altruism.” They hold on to scarcity versus abundance thinking, which prevents them from achieving their philanthropic goals.

Join Kris Putnam-Waverly and the Family Wealth Library for a lunchtime (or late morning) discussion about “Delusional Altruism: Why Philanthropists Fail To Achieve Change and What They Can Do To Transform Giving.”

As part of your registration fee, you will receive a copy of “Delusional Altruism.”

Between the COVID-19 global health crisis, pain and protests fueled by racism, mass unemployment, and more, 2020 is shaping up to change societies and systems for good. In the social good space, funders, philanthropists, nonprofits, and government agencies are all in the midst of operating through multiple crises and beginning to look ahead to the next phase for the social sector. This is a tipping point in our history when leaders across the social sector have an opportunity to make both simple and powerful changes in the ways each side of the funding equation interacts with the others.

This webinar will offer funders, philanthropists, nonprofits, and public sector agencies a timely blend of thought leadership practical guidance, focused on the ways organizations can “flip the script” or partner in new ways to increase social sector resilience and maximize shared impact.
