Inheritors from philanthropic families are already at the forefront of a historic wealth transfer estimated at $59 trillion in the U.S. alone, with nearly half projected to support charitable purposes. At the same time, young techies, hedge-funders, and other next gen entrepreneurs are amassing their own astonishing fortunes, and many of them are turning to philanthropy earlier in their lives than previous generations did. Next gen donors are ushering in an “impact revolution,” and are willing to explore whatever needs changing to achieve real, observable results from their giving and finally “move the needle” on some of our biggest social problems. 

Join us to discuss best practices for how to engage next gen donors in philanthropy, nonprofits, and other organizations and family enterprises to help them become the donors we all need them to be, as well as hear how they’re responding to the many crises affecting society today. With interactive exercises and small group discussions, there will be time for participants to ask questions throughout the session as well as consider the next steps they would like to take.

Sharna Goldseker is today’s leading expert on multigenerational and next generation philanthropy and—as a next gen donor herself—offers a trusted insider’s perspective. As founder of 21/64, a nonprofit practice serving next gen and multigenerational philanthropic families, Sharna has developed the industry’s gold-standard tools for transforming how families who give will define their values, collaborate, and govern in the decades ahead. She is the co-author of the best seller, Generation Impact: How Next Gen Donors Are Revolutionizing Giving published by Wiley; currently serves on the board of directors of the Goldseker Foundation, a foundation established by her great uncle; and is a member of the Collaboration for Family Flourishing, a network of leading family wealth advisors.

This will be offered as a virtual meeting. Connection details will be shared after registration. This session will NOT be recorded.
