“Creating a Culture of Family Philanthropy” is the subject of a free seminar offered by University of Maryland Memorial Hospital Foundation scheduled for Saturday, August 13, 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. at the Talbot Country Club in Easton.

Presented by Elizabeth Spurry, president, Tred Avon Family Wealth, and Martin Johnson, retired financial advisor, the seminar is designed to help parents, grandparents and other family members teach children how to embrace responsibility for the needs of their community. The seminar explores creative, fun and effective ways to create a culture of philanthropy in your family and also includes activities for children, who are welcome to attend with adults.

Topics addressed will include: a history of family based philanthropy – why it’s important to you and the world; when and how to teach philanthropy to children; how to set an example and inspire charitable activities in young people; tools and tricks to inspire family giving; and resources for family based philanthropy. There also will be an activity for children to help them learn how to “keep, spend and share.”
