Network with a group of like-minded peers.
At 21/64, we have learned that a peer group model is an especially effective forum for next generation learning and growth. Next gen donors can explore the messages and legacies they were raised with, articulate their current philanthropic values, and develop their own philanthropic vision moving forward. We convene and facilitate our own retreats, philanthropic events, and ongoing peer networks, as well as help other organizations do the same. This allows next gen donors to grow individually and as a community, while developing their philanthropic skills, clarifying the roles they want to play in big giving, and building a network of like-minded peers.
Objectives for next gen donors.
- To build a network of next gen donors in similar positions of philanthropic opportunity and responsibility
- To create a space where members can learn with their peers and outside of their family
- To invite participants to ask their own questions and explore philanthropic values and approaches
- To develop a philanthropic analysis and capacity for strategic thinking
The NextGenDonors Retreat is for next gen donors (ages 21 – 40) who are or will be stepping into roles in their family’s philanthropy and for donors who are earners themselves and want to clarify their philanthropic values, identity, and direction.

Grand Street participant
The experience of being among peers at with whom I could freely talk about issues of wealth and philanthropy has been valuable on a number of levels. Grand Street has helped me to focus on two very important questions: what is my relationship with Judaism? And how should this inform my future philanthropic choices? I continue to work on both of these. Additionally, the creativity and diversity of perspectives among participants was very stimulating and thought provoking,and many conversations that began at the retreat are still being tossed around among us. The network effects of being part of a group of future Jewish philanthropic leaders are exciting, and I look forward to continuing involvement.
Grand Street Participant
Grand Street is a unique opportunity to meet and learn with other individuals trying to figure out their own philanthropy, family philanthropy, as well as their place in Jewish life. The Grand Street experience provides you with incredible tools and a network to maneuver through the Jewish and philanthropic worlds, tools and lifelong colleagues and friends I still count on today, nine years after my Grand Street experience. I can truly say I wouldn't be half the trustee I am at my family's foundation today if it weren't for Grand Street.
NextGenDonors Retreat Participant
This retreat was life changing and eye opening. It empowered me to ask my parents the questions about this inherited legacy that I had never previously known how to ask.
NextGenDonors Retreat Participant
The NextGenDonors Retreat was really special for me. I learned so much and it was so nice to meet all the participants. I thought everyone had something great to offer and we connected on this common set of issues. After the gathering, I feel more comfortable speaking about my involvement in my family’s foundation, and less hesitant about speaking in front of a group.
