Are you 18-40 and involved in family philanthropy?

January 4, 2011

If so, you should attend the Creating Change Through Family Philanthropy retreat hosted by Resource Generation, a great nonprofit that “organizes young people with financial wealth to leverage resources and privilege for social change.”  The retreat will take place on April 29-May 1, 2011, in lovely Petaluma, California.  The website says:

The retreat is for young people who participate in–or want to participate in–their families’ philanthropy and care about social, economic and environmental justice. Whether you have years of experience in philanthropy or are just beginning, this conference will be a place to further develop your skills, learn new ones and connect with young people across the country.

Through skill-building workshops, action planning sessions and expert panel discussions participants will share experiences and address questions such as:

  • What strategies can I use to bring new topics to the table and strengthen my voice in family decision-making?
  • How does my relationship with my family impact the ways we give together?
  • How can I look critically at questions of history, legacy and mission?
  • How can I incorporate social change giving strategies into my family’s philanthropy?

I think it would be great to see more South Asian families with wealth involved in formal retreats and educational workshops like this!  Register here.
