The Next Generation of donors - young givers between 18 and 40 years of age - generally fall into three categories: inheritors; those with earned wealth; and young people who might not be considered wealthy, yet give a large proportion of their time, talent and dollars to their communities. Each group differs in the way that they think about their money and philanthropy, as well as the relationships and structures through which they give.
In this section you'll find resources and links to organizations to help engage and support our next generation of donors.
