Hirsch’s experience with multi-generational engagement is expansive: we help couples clarify their mission and values; advise siblings with honing priorities; work with parents of young children to plant the seeds of a giving mindset; and support transitions in families ready to pass the torch.
We’ve seen time and again how philanthropy can bring family members together in meaningful ways. Our team of specialists guide spouses, siblings, children, and grandchildren of all ages in planning their philanthropic legacy. And a core part of our expertise includes cultivating the next generation of philanthropists.
The next two decades will see the largest shift of family resources on record, with up to $68 trillion passed down in what’s known as the great wealth transfer. It’s more important than ever to nurture financial responsibility, inspire generosity and pass along values to equip future philanthropic leaders.
We’ll lead your family through these important processes, navigating dynamics and succession planning with sensitivity while providing you with the tools to talk about wealth.
How We Help
Our team works with family members to clarify giving history, values, and long-term goals. We develop custom multi-generational plans that integrate individual passions and strategies into a cohesive direction for family philanthropy.
Exciting elements of family engagement include exploring the purpose and methods of philanthropy. We work with you to consider the many ways and reasons to give, thoughtfully navigate the power dynamics inherent in philanthropy, and evaluate nonprofit fiscal health and impact metrics.
Whether the goal is to connect younger family members to a family foundation or help the next generation build their own philanthropic strategy or program, we create opportunities to address the issues you and your family care most about.
