How Do You Engage Children and Grandchildren in Philanthropy?

Lisa Parker is president and executive director of the Lawrence Welk Family Foundation, which was established by her grandfather, the world-famous entertainer and entrepreneur. In this interview with Keith Whitaker, Lisa talks about lessons she learned from her work with the second, third, and fourth generations of her family, as well as what she’s learned from other families about how to engage children and grandchildren in philanthropy. Along the way, Lisa addresses the challenge of navigating family members’ different interests, stages of life, and values. This is a great conversation for listeners seeking to deepen their families’ commitment to giving as generations.
