Talking Turkey with the Family About Philanthropy

Over the years we have had worked with many donors and their advisors on their place-based philanthropy, often involving multiple generations of a family. It is both fascinating and inspiring to hear family traditions of integrating philanthropy into holiday gatherings to develop intergenerational bonds, to instill empathy, and to teach family values. We found these ideas from the 21/64 advisory group in New York to be a great start to thinking about new traditions for the next generation of philanthropists.

Children who help others are more likely to have a broader view of the world than the lives they lead. Connecting with those in need helps young people to fend off entitlement and find an avenue for personal fulfillment. We hope that you’ll be inspired to engage with your family and community during this season of giving and in the new year.
