With trillions of dollars of family wealth expected to transfer across generations in the coming decades, next generation philanthropy is a hot topic, and one that is already challenging traditional ways of giving.

In our latest philanthropy podcast, we hear from three inspirational next gen donors about their progressive approaches to giving, and how they’ve managed the expectations and responsibilities of inheriting family wealth.
