"Family Ties: Multigenerational Family Foundation Board Engagement" is the Surdna Foundation's second centennial publication. The board and staff of the Surdna Foundation commissioned the Center for Effective Philanthropy's advisory services group to create a publication about good governance amongst family foundations.
