Map

It’s difficult to connect and collaborate with other organizations when you don’t know who, what or where they are. We’ve eliminated that problem by creating a map of over 30 organizations and networks in the youth-philanthropy sector. Use the list below to learn about and connect with organizations working to support and grow youth philanthropy. [Please note that some of the information on this page may not be current.]

In addition, we have created a modest list of academic and corporate next generation wealth programs here.

21/64 is a non-profit consulting division of the Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies that specializes in next generation and multi-generational strategic philanthropy. As families engage the next generation in their foundations, donor advised funds, and other forms of family enterprises, there is an increasing need for clarity, communication and multigenerational collaboration.
While these endeavors are wonderful opportunities for families to work together, challenges can and often do arise when multiple generations and family members with relationship dynamics begin to make decisions together. 21/64 offers consulting, speaking, training and uniquely-developed resource tools to assist families during these times of generational transitions.
Our services can be applied broadly or tailored to address Jewish questions specifically.
21/64 works with families, next-generation funders and advisors to families through four hands-on approaches:
Consult with families, foundations and federations in customized settings with our uniquely developed tools to facilitate the process of next-generation or multigenerational cooperation and communication.
Convene networks of next generation family members who explore their legacies, values and philanthropic identities alongside peers with similar backgrounds and experiences.
Communicate through newsletters, research reports, articles and speaking engagements the generational realities we discover in our work with next generation funders and their families.
Train advisors to families who are interested in acquiring the personal skills, generational awareness and technical tools to work more effectively with next-generation funders and family enterprise clients.

Point of Contact: Jason Franklin, Executive Director

Bolder Giving’s mission is to inspire and support people to give at their full lifetime potential.
What we do:

  • Offer eye-opening stories of extraordinary role models
  • Give donors practical advice on how to give at their full potential
  • Provide tools and inspiration to the donor education community

We promote four ways of being bold:

  • Giving more (time, talent and treasure)
  • Giving more effectively
  • Being more fulfilled as a giver
  • Encouraging the giving of others

Whom we serve:

  • People who want to give more boldly
  • Professionals who work with donors (fundraisers, philanthropic and financial advisors)
  • Members of the media and others interested in the field of philanthropy

Our unique niche:

  • Peer-oriented: Most philanthropic advice is given by professionals. We are donors talking to donors, building a peer community of people who believe in the power of giving boldly.
  • Widely accessible: Often, peer-support networks are expensive and only for a certain type of donor. Our information is freely available on the web. We serve bold givers of all financial and experience levels.
  • Challenge and support: Most professional advisors have to be careful with their donors. As peers, we can speak personally to vital, touchy questions such as “How much is enough?” Our goal is to offer challenge as well as practical, nonjudgmental support.

Help with the journey: Most giving-related websites simply connect donors to projects. Bolder Giving does not suggest where to fund, but rather gives donors a hand with the complex, long-term journey of becoming effective, passionate, deeply-committed givers.

Building on the successful model of the Clinton Global Initiative, which brings together world leaders to take action on global challenges, President Clinton launched the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) in 2007 to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world.
Each year, CGI U hosts a meeting for students, national youth organizations, and university officials to discuss solutions to pressing global issues. The third annual CGI U Meeting was held at the University of Miami from April 16-18, 2010. At this meeting, nearly 1,500 attendees came together to make a difference in CGI U’s five global challenge areas: Education, Environment & Climate Change, Peace & Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Public Health.
CGI U is more than just an event. It is a growing community of young leaders who don’t just discuss the world’s challenges – they take real, concrete steps toward solving them. Throughout the year, and as a prerequisite of attending the CGI U meeting, students, youth directors, and university officials develop their own Commitments to Action: a specific plan of action that addresses a pressing challenge on their campus, in their community, or in a different part of the world.

The Council on Foundations is committed to providing resources and programs to support next generation philanthropic leaders and connect members to one another in meaningful ways. 

In 2009, the Council created the Next Generation Task Force to provide the Council with expertise and guidance to shape programs and services to maximize the impact of and support for the next generation of philanthropists and philanthropic leaders. The members of the task force, all age 40 and under, are staff and trustees of corporate, community, family, independent, and international foundations of varying geographies and diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds. The following provides an overview of the programs currently offered for next generation philanthropic leaders.
Trading Power
The Council on Foundations’ Next Generation Task Force, along with our partners 21/64, Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy, and Resource Generation, are proud to release the publication Trading Power at the 2010 Family Philanthropy Conference. As the Council has worked both to broaden services and enhance options for Next Gen leaders, basic questions about increasing Next Gen representation in leadership positions across philanthropy surfaced again and again: Why? How? Who? When? What would it look like? Trading Power, the outgrowth of interviews with more than 15 seasoned and next generation philanthropic executives and trustees, offers candid insights worthy of action. Pick up a hard copy in the Next Gen Lounge, or go to www.cof.org/tradingpower to download a copy.
Next Gen Programming at COF Conferences – Family, Annual, and Community
The next generation task force also provides guidance and support for Council conference plenary sessions, concurrent sessions, receptions, retreats, and site visits geared toward a next gen audience. The Emerging Leaders Salon, where a notable philanthropic leader gives personal insight into philanthropy with a small group of next gen attendees, is consistently well-attended and noted for its high quality of learning.

Against a backdrop of a generational wealth transfer and changing dynamics in the American Jewish community, Grand Street is a place where young Jews (18-28 years old) who are involved or will be involved as leaders in their family’s philanthropy come together.
Grand Street began in 2002 with twelve people meeting for a weekend to ask their own questions, to develop a Jewish philanthropic analysis and capacity for strategic thinking, to create a space where they can find personal development, and, where they can build a network of their peers in similar positions of philanthropic responsibility. A new cohort of twelve individuals is added each year.
Some participants are in college or have recently graduated; some have assumed roles within their family’s foundations, yet many are just aware of those imminent responsibilities. All of them feel alone in being young and associated with philanthropic wealth while not only allocating –or planning to allocate– money but also reconciling their personal passions with their families’ interests, both Jewish and universal.
There are no preconceived outcomes or expectations for participation in the network, only unexpected benefits. The cohort groups have bonded together to such an extent that members have begun to self-organize annual trips to international Jewish communities such as those of Argentina, Poland and Brazil.

Since its founding in 1991, the Institute for Private Investors (IPI) has provided innovative educational and networking resources to families with substantial assets — and their advisors — all within a safe harbor for the confidential exchange of information.
Private investors join IPI to become more sophisticated stewards of their wealth and more discriminating purchasers of financial services. At present more than 1,100 private investors along with 140 professional firms are members, with four out of five member families overseeing assets of US$50 million or more. In aggregate the 367 member families, from 18 countries and 40 states, oversee in excess of US$50 billion.
Because IPI does not endorse any investment services, strategies or managers, the program content is academic, not promotional. Educational and networking activities are held in cities across the U.S. and abroad. Five two-day forums are held annually for the private investor membership, in New York and California, with smaller special briefings and member roundtables held throughout the year.
