A shared interest in philanthropy can bring families and couples closer together. Sometimes, however, miscommunication and misunderstanding can derail discussions, frustrate participants and stall philanthropic decision-making.

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

We offer a number of approaches to help strengthen communication and decision-making related to philanthropy. Through facilitated discussions and retreats, training in effective listening and speaking skills, and sessions using the Myers-Briggs Personality Indicator (MBTI) assessment tool, we help build greater mutual understanding and genuine agreements among couples and families.

Please contact us if you would like us to help you make working together on philanthropy as effective and satisfying as it can be.
