At 21/64, we understand the unique skills and perspectives the next generation can bring to the philanthropic community. However, the prospect of engaging the next generation can be daunting.
Next-generation family members have grown up with access to broader opportunities fueled by information technology, increased diversity and global connectedness. The questions they ask, language they use, and even their values and priorities change the way the family communicates.
The more a family is able to see that “involving the kids” does not only mean adding children to an existing system, but rather shifting the family paradigm to become multigenerational – embracing what each generation brings to the table – the better prepared they will be for the next phase of the foundation’s evolution, and for meeting the needs of the 21st century.

The second edition of Exploring Giving has arrived! This new and improved deck of 50 question cards is designed to prompt conversations and reflections around giving for advisors and clients, next gen, family members, boards, peers, colleagues, and others. Learn more about how this tool can be a resource to you by clicking here.
Inspired by our own families and those we and our colleagues work with, we created Home for the Holidays: A Guide for Family Giving, a collection of meaningful and fun family bonding activities for the holiday season. Use this list and the accompanying 21/64 tools to make the most of your family celebrations.
If you are a next gen who is or will be engaging in your family’s giving and interested in developing your philanthropic identity and skills among like-minded peers, we would like to invite you to join us at the #NextGenDonors Retreat in San Francisco on February 19. This Retreat will be a precursor to the National Summit on Family Philanthropy conference. Receive a 10% discount when you register for both. Learn more here.
