Inheritors within philanthropic families are already at the forefront of a historic generational wealth transfer—estimated at $59 trillion dollars in the U.S alone, much of it designated for charitable purposes. At the same time, young techies, hedge-funders, and other next gen entrepreneurs are amassing their own astonishing fortunes and are beginning to turn their entrepreneurial fervor to philanthropy. Together they have a passion to wield their financial might differently than previous generations, leading researchers and authors Sharna Goldseker and Michael Moody to predict a seismic shift in how giving is done that will alter the fate of the causes and organizations we care about.

Next gen big donors are ushering in an “impact revolution,” say Goldseker and Moody. They are willing to change whatever needs changing to achieve real, observable results from their giving and finally “move the needle” on some of our biggest social problems and aspirations. Learn how next gen donors are different from their parents and grandparents and how to successfully engage this generation in your nonprofits, family philanthropy and other organizations and family enterprises.
