Leadership Retreats

Engaging family, committees, and board members is crucial to the success of your foundation. We will work with you to organize your priorities and plan an inspiring event that energizes your team and achieves optimal results. 

Succession Planning

Every foundation needs a plan for bringing on new board members over time. Family foundations may need support bringing younger family members up to speed and preparing them to be effective grantmakers. The BK team can guide this process and help your foundation define a long-term path for cultivating the next generation of leaders.
