       exercises to connect across generations, and free

       what the next gen offers in exchange for what
       seasoned leaders provide.

    What Redefining Will Mean in San Diego
    The speakers, session leaders, and the attendees
    will redefine more than what family philanthropy
    means to us. We will redefine the way we meet
    with and learn from each other. This new way of
    doing things will be applied to topics that are at
    the heart and soul of family philanthropy:
     • Maximizing impact beyond metrics
     • Putting the civil back in discourse
     • Exploring the evolving definition of family
     • Amplifying giving power through different
       charitable giving vehicles
     • Funding education, the arts, community (place
       based), and internationally
     • Investments and fiduciary responsibility: how
       everything changed with the economic crisis
     • Getting the most out of public-philanthropic

    Eligibility Policy
    The Council on Foundations invites individuals and organizations en-
    gaged in philanthropy to join us at the 2010 Family Philanthropy Con-
    ference. We welcome trustees and staff of U.S.-based and
    non-U.S.-based private, operating, and community foundations; public
    grantmaking charities; and corporate funders (foundations and/or giv-
    ing programs). We also welcome community foundations, giving cir-
    cles, philanthropic advisors, and individuals who have a demonstrated
    record of giving.

    Conference registration is open to all Council members and qualified
    non-members. If your organization is not a Council member, please
    read the eligibility guidelines below. After reading the guidelines, if
    you are still unsure about whether you are eligible to attend, please
    contact the Council’s Membership Department at
    or 703-879-0645.

    Council members receive a special conference rate that is signifi-
    cantly lower than the rate for non-members. If your organization ap-
    plies for Council membership—and your application is approved by
    December 31, 2010—the Council will apply a credit to your dues pay-
    ment that equals the difference between the member and non-member
    rates. If the credit amount is greater than the dues, the Council will
    credit your dues obligation for use the following year.

    Eligibility Guidelines for Nonmembers
    The Council requires all nonmember organizations and individuals to
    submit certain documents so we can verify eligibility. The guidelines
    below (broken down by category) explain the specific documents you
    need to submit. We ask that you send your information as early as pos-
    sible. Please note that submitting the requested documents does not
    guarantee eligibility to attend the conference. Please do not make
    travel arrangements until the Council confirms eligibility.

    Donor Advisors
    Donor advisors with a community foundation or a commercial gift fund
    are invited to attend the 2010 Family Philanthropy Conference. Please
    submit a letter with your registration form (or at the time of your
    registration) that lists the name of your fund, the place where the
    fund is held, and inception date.

    Students and recent graduates from accredited educational institu-
    tions may be eligible to attend our conferences for a special
    guest/student rate. Students should complete the conference regis-
    tration form and include a letter stating their area of study, antici-
    pated graduation date, and reason for attending the conference.
    Students who are affiliated with an organization that is a Council
    member should register through the organization.

    Banks and Trust Companies
    Nonmember representatives from banks, trust companies, and organi-
    zations that manage trust funds are eligible to attend if they are
    sponsored by an eligible foundation or corporate funder. Representa-
    tives who wish to register under the name of a bank, trust company, or
    managing organization must pay the non-member rate.
