Mobilizing for the Future: Next Gen Philanthropy
Step into Leadership
As the largest transfer of generational wealth on record begins to take place, families are increasingly sharing traditions and envisioning their philanthropic legacies. Parents are working to instill a giving mindset in their children. Young adults are striving to make bold and transformative gifts thoughtfully and with humility. And individuals who have come into significant wealth are seeking to use their resources for greater impact.
Hirsch Philanthropy Partners guides new philanthropists embarking on their giving journey — developing vision and strategy, building community relationships, and making their first small and large grants. More philanthropists than ever share our deep commitment toward economic and racial justice, democracy and voting rights, and the future health of the planet. The next generation is stepping up to give and lead, and our team is here to help steer the transition.
Provide Opportunities to Learn, Grow, and Give
We advise new philanthropists to give effectively and strategically to drive change on relevant issues aligned with giving values. We work alongside philanthropists to direct dollars that build organizational strength and capacity, often through unrestricted support which allows for flexible funds to be used when and where they’re needed. We also mentor new philanthropists on their board participation and other opportunities to share their skills and connections beyond financial support. Whether you are a tech founder wanting to start a new foundation, parents who want to nurture a giving mindset when your kids are young, or the third generation of a philanthropic family interested in board service, Hirsch is your trusted partner.
Create Trust-Based Relationships
Through transformative philanthropic practices like trust-based relationships and community-powered philanthropy, we build respect between the next generation of philanthropists and nonprofit leaders, understanding that the best ideas for change often originate from the community itself. We elevate connections between issues and seek surprising solutions that uplift and transform. By building on the successes and lessons from our decades in philanthropy, together we can create more equitable and just systems.
