As wealthy families become more sophisticated with their philanthropic giving, the role of the family foundation and family office also becomes more important. According to a November 2012 report Working Together for Common Purpose by the National Center for Family Philanthropy, there are an estimated 3,000 to 5,000 family offices in the U.S. alone. Much of the guidance that we provide to individual donors is also useful to family foundations and family office staff who need help thinking about strategic giving, linking cost and impact, and measuring the effectiveness of their grantmaking.
