As families engage the next generation in their foundations, donor advised funds, and other forms of family enterprise, 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 facilitation, speaking and tools to assist families during these times of generational transition.
Whether new to philanthropy or experiencing a transition into a new stage of life or leadership, we understand that individuals often need assistance and can benefit from life-long coaching and education including peer 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.
If you are a next gen family member who is or will be engaging in your family’s philanthropy and interested in developing your skills, exploring your identity and clarifying your values and visions around philanthropy among like-minded peers, we would like to invite you to join us at Grand Street’s New Cohort Retreat in Chicago this September or at #NextGenDonors in San Francisco this February. Learn more here.
What Am I Inheriting? allows family members to learn their family stories from previous generations, as well as pass those stories on to the next generations. Discover and share the family inheritance, beyond the financial, and in terms of the traditions and values that inform your life today.
Created by 21/64 in partnership with Youth Philanthropy Connect & The Frieda C. Fox Family Foundation, roleplay is an interactive tool that leverages the powerful act of play to help youth, next gen funders, families, giving circles, foundation and junior boards, or any groups making decisions together gain awareness of how they act in different roles—both personally and as a funders—to make mindful choices about the roles they want to play.
21/64 has updated PYL, making this popular deck of colorful images more dynamic and effective at catalyzing creative conversations around legacy. You can order your own, learn more, and discover how to begin living your legacy here.
