Conversations That Impact Decision Making for Today and Tomorrow’s Philanthropists

June 21 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Speaker: Heidi Jark, Foundation Services Managing Director, Fifth Third Bank

About the Program: What are the issues and conversations that are top to mind for families today? What’s keeping clients up at night and, possibly, keeping them from making financial and planning decisions, including charitable ones? This conversation will explore modern day family dynamics and how those dynamics are changing the playing field for charities. We’ll discuss the conversations revolving around the issues of leaving a lasting legacy, engaging next generations, and mindful giving, and how those conversations impact decision making for today and tomorrow’s philanthropists.
