Multi-Generational Philanthropy: What You Need to Know

How do next generation donors honor the philanthropic legacies and values they’ve inherited, while helping to dramatically move the needle on enduring social problems? How will the much-anticipated transfer of wealth between generations impact funding for your organization? As families strive to pass along their traditions of philanthropic giving, they often encounter disconnects from one generation to the next. This session will explore how families are making connections across all generations that move beyond the head, to the heart of a philanthropic lifestyle, and how development professionals can help facilitate this process, thereby ensuring the sustainability of philanthropic resources.
