The American College of Financial Services’ Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® (CAP®) is our fastest growing professional designation program – engaging financial professionals, gift planners, community and private foundation leaders, back office professionals, and social entrepreneurs in a robust educational curriculum that delivers the strategies and skills needed to advise clients on charitable giving and guide charitable organizations in their fundraising efforts.

This exchange of ideas must extend beyond the CAP® program, in forums far and wide, with leaders of various professional backgrounds, perspectives, and personal stories. The College continues to put its stake in the ground around these critical issues by Inspiring Leaders in Philanthropy through rich, deep discussion.

On March 17, I had the privilege of sitting down – through the power of technology – with Scott Davison CLU®, ChFC®, OneAmerica Chairman, President, and CEO, and Nick Tedesco, President and CEO of the National Center for Family Philanthropy.

Defining motivations and values is in many ways the most critical step a family takes as they chart a path forward in their philanthropy. This has been especially important in the age of COVID-19 as we support our friends, neighbors, and local communities’ basic needs: food, housing, and access to jobs and healthcare. The three of us explored why families give, as well as how their values bring them together on their philanthropic journey.

You can watch our conversation below and register for our second fireside chat on March 31 with Tony Mason, Indianapolis Urban League President and CEO. In two weeks, Scott, Tony, and I will discuss why economic mobility in underserved communities is good for society and business. I hope you will join us!
