21/64 Training 1.0
21/64 is pleased to offer annual trainings for those interested in acquiring the personal skills, generational awareness and technical tools to work more effectively with next-generation funders and family enterprise clients. Held over the course of two days, the 21/64 Training is a hands-on experience, geared to a small group of professionals who want to broaden their ability to relate to family philanthropy and private wealth clients, and to help them navigate more successfully across generations. Certified consultants receive discounts on tools, client referrals and join an alumni network that provides peer support and continuing education.
Kim Wright, Director of Philanthropic Services at The Seattle Foundation espouses:
"21/64 tools have increased my ability to dive deeper with donors and particularly families with multiple generations at the table. The training is dynamic, fresh, and very full of interactive experiences and moments for personal and professional reflection. As an organization, we have benefitted from both the 21/64 certification as well as the continued relationship with the 21/64 staff."
Ongoing Professional Development
After participants have completed our 1.0 training, the educational process has only just begun. 21/64 is pleased to offer a quarterly series of teleconferences led by certified trainers and 21/64 staff, that build upon the initial learning experience to ensure that alumni are continuing to get the most out of the 21/64 tools and training materials.
Debra Campbell, a philanthropic advisor, explains how she benefited from participating in a recent event:
“In the 21/64 training there is a huge amount of information to absorb, so the opportunity for a somewhat deeper dive [into the materials] was very useful. I especially appreciated the clarity and thoughtfulness of the presentations. I want to thank the trainers for organizing the 21/64 Tools Conference Call and the presenters for their insightful remarks.”
Embrace Your Network
In addition, 21/64 draws from its network to enable alumni to hear from some of today’s leading experts in their respective fields. Recently, Nancy Lubin, from DoSomething.Org, gave a presentation focusing on the six main characteristics of millennials and the best practices to identify their ‘hot button’ topics and increase their engagement. At another presentation, Christine Carter, author of “Raising Happiness: 10 Simple Steps for More Joyful Kids and Happier Parents,” taught techniques to help families build foundational skills to help embed in their children the types of character strengths that best predict long term success and happiness. 21/64 is proud to keep an open dialogue with alumni to ensure that all future events continue to satisfy their interests and needs.
"You have created a fabulous training for the 21/64 tools – the combination of personal and group development, learning on individual and then facilitation levels, and working with specific tools and an overall system – what a hard balance that you did extremely well. So many thanks for including me in the program!"

"It was a real treat to be sequestered and pushed to think about our work practice, our views on money and how we can have an even greater impact on the philanthropic world. It was clear that you worked hard on getting the right people in the room and on the best methodology to transmit your breadth of knowledge and experience."
