Jewish Foundation Selected for Groundbreaking Multi-generational Family Philanthropy Training | 21-Oct-2016

Over the next 30 years, an estimated $30 trillion will be passed down from Baby Boomers and their parents to younger generations. There is tremendous potential impact for these funds on Jewish Federations, synagogues, the Jewish community, and the myriad programs and services that are supported.

To help manage this transition in New Haven, Lisa Stanger, Executive Director of the Jewish Foundation of Greater New Haven, was chosen to participate in a comprehensive national philanthropic training program made possible through a collaboration between the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) and 21/64.  21/64 is a nonprofit organization that specializes in engaging multiple generations within families in philanthropic giving.  21/64’s platform helps families develop and implement their philanthropic goals and legacies.

The program, funded in part by a grant from the JFNA Domestic Endowment Fund, will ensure that the professional staff of the Federation and Foundation is equipped to facilitate and promote open family dialogues regarding values, philanthropy, and family legacies.  The program has garnered high praise from families living in the 41 communities that already have participated in this training.

“I took part in the training program several months ago, and found it to be well worthwhile.  I gained valuable insight about family dynamics when multiple generations are engaged in a family’s charitable giving, and brought back many tools that families in our Jewish community will find useful as they develop their family philanthropic goals and values.  It is essential to build and strengthen relationships among families and their professional advisors and to open new paths for multigenerational philanthropic involvement,” said Stanger.  “This initiative allows families to establish and maintain positive relationships with our Jewish community, allowing them, as a family unit, to invest in a mission that they believe in.” To find out more and to make an appointment contact the Jewish Foundation, 203-387-2424, www.newhavenjewishfoundation.org
