The Dream Principle“While we all have our own foundations, the family foundation brings us together as a family.
There is a common vision which sustains what Grampa Sam would have wanted.”
Stephen Bronfman, President
Sam and Saidye Bronfman Family Foundation
Dor l'DorYou love this community. You helped build its institutions and create a strong foundation for the future. Now you may be thinking about your legacy - something that reflects who you are and your family values; something that says you were here-that you left a significant imprint on the future. And you want to entrust your children with ensuring your philanthropic dreams are carried on beyond your lifetime.
Establishing a family giving tradition that transcends generations is about more than money. It's a process which involves an exchange of values and an examination of what your family stands for. And getting started can be complicated.
Every day, the JCF deals with many of the issues that philanthropic families face (whether it be a private or public foundation) – thinking strategically, intergenerational decision-making and maximizing the impact of philanthropic giving.
The Family Philanthropy Institute (FPI) is a resource centre for families who wish to ensure that their philanthropic traditions are passed down to their children and grandchildren. We have the tools to help you get started on the path to creating a family legacy that reflects your goals and those of your children.
