Couples & Families

A shared interest in philanthropy can bring families and couples closer together and honor the legacy of those who came before. Sometimes miscommunication and misunderstanding can derail discussions, frustrate participants and stall philanthropic decision-making.

Philanthropy Associates works with couples and families to gain greater satisfaction from their giving by helping them clarify philanthropic goals and the values and assumptions that underlie them. We know the questions to ask and we know how to listen.

Our strategies for strengthening communication and decision-making include training and consultation in:

  • Effective listening and speaking skills
  • Group dynamics
  • ‘Difficult Conversations’ guidance
  • Giving and Receiving Feedback
  • Mediation and Conflict Resolution
  • Personalized Coaching
  • Myers-Briggs Personality Indicator (MBTI)© assessments

We are experts at building greater mutual understanding and genuine agreements among couples and families. Please contact us if you would like help making your philanthropic giving as effective and satisfying as it can be.
