Family philanthropy around the world is a dynamic and important part of the overall social change landscape. However, with more and more individuals and families involved in this space and the ever increasing variety of approaches and choices, it is a vast and sometimes confusing subject and it can be difficult for families and their advisers who have an interest in philanthropy to know where to begin.

Edited by Barbara R Hauser, it brings together a variety of international experts including from Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, Farrer & Co and the National Philanthropic Trust, who cover, amongst other key topics:
- How families can make decisions about their philanthropy activities;
- Donor advised funds;
- Ways in which families can support cultural organisations, such as museums; and
- Leaving a legacy for the next generations.
There is also consideration of philanthropy in different jurisdictions, and the growing impact of wealthy women with inspiring examples from around the world.
