"21/64 has provided invaluable guidance to the Jewish Community Endowment Fund in our work with next generation inheritors and earners of wealth. Sharna helped us to launch the Young Funders' Forum, a tremendously successful ongoing program serving emerging Jewish philanthropists in the Bay Area. It really is one of the best things we've done during my nine year plus tenure here, and is helping to change the overall landscape of the Endowment The Young Funders are now serving on the Endowment Committee, assuming leadership roles on a number of our foundations and committees, establishing funds here, and advancing in their own philanthropic thinking. 21/64 has also led productive workshops for us using excellent tools they created, and we continue to rely on their good counsel."
