Next Generation

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.

Next Generation

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.
