The First Bank Center for Family-Owned Businesses held a webinar on Tuesday June 8th covering The Role of Philanthropy in Family, Business, and Community.
Family businesses often have deep roots in their communities. They receive many benefits from the people that surround them. With effective philanthropy, they have the opportunity to give back. Barbara Carswell, Chief Executive Officer at Youthbridge Community Foundation, Deborah Dubin, CEO & President at Philanthropy Missouri, David Frederick, Adjunct Professor of Economics at Washington University, and Stacy Clay, Director of Community Affairs at First Bank, discussed the benefits of business philanthropy, how the business can be an avenue for a family’s charitable intentions, the best ways to structure charitable gifts, and opportunities to get involved in the community.
