The National Center for Family Philanthropy held its annual Forum on Family Philanthropy in Chicago in October 2019. Pierce Family Foundation Co-Executive Director Heather Parish was a feat
ured speaker at the plenary session, "Everything Old is New Again: Gen Op, Capacity Building, and Multi-Year Grants." The session argued for a strong investment in nonprofit's personnel, strategic plans, technology, and other items that have long been seen as surperfluous, rather than essential. Family foundations are pushing the mindset on this issue nationally, and Heather spoke about PFF's contribution to this important work.
