[A]n excellent tool to promote multigenerational dialogue, foster true partnerships, and help families look at their philanthropy in new ways. -- Susan Crites Price, Managing Director, Family Foundation Services, Council on Foundation and Author, The Giving Family: Raising Our Children to Help Others
From the Back Cover
Creating Change Through Family Philanthropy is the first book to look directly at how members of the next generation are addressing these questions. Based on the program experience of Resource Generation--a national non-profit that works with young people with wealth who care about social justice--and over forty interviews, this book offers a window into young people's own ideas and concerns.
What's revealed is an engaging case for shifting not only where family funds give, but how they give. This book argues that in order to address urgent social and economic needs, in order to truly incorporate the priorities of younger members, families need to question some of the most fundamental assumptions on which their giving is based. It approaches controversial topics from power dynamics to grants payout in an accessible way, offering next generation readers the tools they need to transform their funds.
While written specifically for young philanthropists, this guide is also an essential reference for all those who work with wealthy families and research the field, including financial managers, philanthropic advisors, and non-profit fundraisers. Many of the 40,000+ family funds and their advisors are seeking strategies to involve young people in giving. Creating Change Through Family Philanthropy provides several resources to begin.
