Venture Philanthropy and the Great Wealth Transfer: A Golden Opportunity 

Katherine Fox, Arnerich Massena

The Great Wealth Transfer is upon us! With philanthropic dollars moving towards younger generations, both advisors and non-profits are hyper aware of the need to respond to donor’s changing demographics and needs. With younger donors, and especially millennials, focused on aligning impact across investment portfolios and philanthropic endeavors, venture philanthropy is poised to continue its rapid expansion and acceleration of trends on the cutting edge of giving.

Key to responsive philanthropy, venture philanthropy offers an exciting opportunity to bridge the needs of philanthropic families by providing an investment and philanthropic structure that meets the needs of both older and younger generations.

Attendees will:

  • Discover current trends in venture philanthropy and learn options for explaining the opportunity to clients using known investment structures.
  • Explore how venture philanthropy can be used to address younger family members’ social justice and impact-focused concerns as part of the overall philanthropic portfolio.
  • Help clients begin to create a family framework for discussing and exploring venture philanthropy.
  • Participate in a “choose your own adventure” case study in which audience members create a unique donor family and explore venture philanthropy organizations aligned with the family’s key interest areas and values.
