Inflation and the possibility (if not current reality!) of a recession are huge challenges to raising funds for nonprofit organizations. With inflation currently over 9%--a 40-year high—and the equity markets like the S&P 500 down over 20% year to date, nonprofit leaders are justifiably concerned about raising the funds necessary to support their important work.

The Power of Multi-generational Giving

According to the Center on Wealth and Philanthropy at Boston College, we are currently experiencing the largest wealth transfer in US history. $59 trillion (yes, trillion!) will transfer to the next generation from 2007 to 2061. Charitable giving during that same period is estimated to be $20.6 trillion.

Thus, increasingly traditions of giving, and not just money, are passed from one generation to the next.
