Align your family’s values, goals and giving strategies.
See how we can engage your next generation.
- Engage your next generation now.
- Prepare to pass the baton before the will is read.
- Get help discussing and prioritizing your philanthropic plan while working within a multigenerational family.
We understand: multigenerational family conversations can be challenging.
But, engaging your next generation family members in meaningful dialog during your lifetime is an opportunity in itself.
Through Facilitation we enable multigenerational families to:
Engage your next generation
Craft your own values & vision statement for a philanthropic fund
Plan an education series to prepare children of affluence to lead
Develop a plan of action that best fits you and your family
The hallmark of 21/64 facilitation is a fusion of experiential learning and purposeful skill building, keenly designed with unique insight about the next generation.
Client-Centered. Interactive. Action-Oriented.
We believe that successful families are intentional about their financial, human and philanthropic resources. Our process for facilitation is based on the Action Research method developed by Kurt Lewin. A 21/64 facilitation—no matter the topic—is client centered, interactive, and action oriented. Rather than using a “talking-head” presentation style or delivering a report that sits on a shelf, we partner with clients to actively define challenges and plan solutions relative to the change the client is trying to put in place.
Our process begins with a clear understanding of the challenge or need followed by collaborative planning to develop a course of action. These custom plans can be handed over to your staff to implement or we can help implement them and then evaluate how it went to determine next steps. We will capture outcomes from the conversations; share lessons we have learned from our experience when relevant; and, if applicable, use our uniquely developed tools.
Types of Offerings
In a changing world sometimes setting a new strategic direction is necessary. As your family foundation, family enterprise, nonprofit or other organization looks to make a change—such as increasing next gen engagement or drafting a succession plan—21/64 can bring first-hand experience, training and research to bear. Our expert facilitation will help you set new goals and strategies while still honoring past legacies. 21/64 has been working with individuals, families, wealth and philanthropy advisors for 15 years as they navigate the changes before them.

LET US HELP YOU ENGAGE THE NEXT GENERATION
Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland
21/64 facilitated a discussion among different generations of several family foundations in a room together. The process inspired grandparents, adult children and grandchildren to reveal heartfelt and candid beliefs about themselves, their families and their philanthropy. These kinds of conversations are precious to those involved in them and actually build closer relationships within families.
