Last year The Chauncey F. Lufkin III Foundation | Family Office attended more than 30 family office gatherings in an effort to get to know others who are similarly pursuing philanthropic good works and financial investments that make real, measurable impact.
Spending this time exploring the various groups and gatherings truly refreshed our perspectives. We feel very fortunate to have forged new friendships with like-minded donors and co-investors, shared our experiences on panels, and were stimulated by what we learned. Much was gained, best captured in the photographic highlights offered here.
