Philanthropy & The Next Generation
Clarity, communication, and multigenerational collaboration are essential as St. Louis Community Foundation donors seek to involve the next generation in their funds and giving activities. To jump-start the dialogue, the Community Foundation recently brought 21/64, a nonprofit consulting group specializing in multigenerational engagement, to St. Louis for a day of conversation with three key groups: donors, professional wealth advisors, and Community Foundation staff.
During the day, participants were challenged to answer the following questions:
- What is the legacy that you aspire to leave?
- What is the impact you want to achieve?
- Who is the funder you aspire to be?
Determining the answers to these questions will help donors — and their wealth advisors — articulate a charitable vision. In addition, 21/64 provided a colorful deck of images for donors and wealth advisors to use to drive conversations and define intentions, which provide the framework for a mission statement.
