Multi-Generational Generosity: The Challenges and Opportunities of Teaching the Next Generation to Give
When donors’ children pick up where they left off in support of a worthy cause, they can do a lot of good. But there’s no guarantee that this next generation will share the same values, passion, or capacity for giving. Moderator George Bailey will seek insights regarding these issues from the following panel members: Rebecca Rothey, Vice President of Development and Senior Philanthropic Advisor for the Greater Washington Community Foundation; Josh Tolley, Nationally Syndicated Talk-Show Host and Lead Mechanic, Master Strategist, and Opportunity Snatcher for Purple Monkey Garage; and Whitney M. Kenter, Partner and Managing Member of Matter Family Office.

What Your High Net-Worth Donor/Clients Want You to Know @ Saint Louis Club
May 21 @ 11:15 am – 1:15 pm
Guest Speaker: Vivan Loy, CFP Senior Wealth Strategist, PNC Wealth Management
About the presentation: In depth studies have been done by the Nonprofit Community to determine what motivates Major Donors, but more importantly what these high net-worth donor/clients expect of their professional advisors.  Above and beyond the legal and tax components, which are expected, these motivated individuals expect EVERY member of the planning team to understand, guide and support the personal and philanthropic goals.’
