For philanthropic families, charitable giving is more than just a way to strengthen their communities and support causes that are dear to their hearts. Philanthropy is a central part of the family’s mission, values, and legacy.

We examine best practices for teaching younger generations about philanthropy and engaging them in the family’s charitable activities.
