As families engage the next generation in their foundations, donor advised funds, and other forms of family enterprises, there is an increasing need for clarity, communication and multigenerational collaboration. While these endeavors are wonderful opportunities for families to work together, challenges can and often do arise when multiple generations and family members with relationship dynamics begin to make decisions together. 21/64 offers consulting, speaking and tools to assist families during these times of generational transitions.
Whether new to philanthropy or experiencing a transition into a new stage of life or leadership, we understand that individual donors often need assistance and can benefit from our life-long strategic donor education and multigenerational networks. 21/64 provides individuals with a strategic framework, innovative tools, resources and relationships to explore their personal identity, their role in their family enterprises, their assets, and their philanthropy. This work ensures that their deeply held beliefs align with their actions and amplify the impact they seek in the world.
21/64, in partnership with Relatives Solutions, created the Family Diagram as a resource for family members and their advisors interested in exploring family histories in order to gain deeper insights into the family dynamic in operation today. This high touch tool connects users to the richness of their multigenerational family narratives, and as users craft their diagram, they will begin to see the patterns of behavior within their family systems. This deeper understanding of roles and relationships will create a starting place to ask questions that may have previously felt unapproachable.
