Impact Evaluation of Greater Houston Community Foundation’s Next Gen Programming

The future of philanthropy will be shaped in profound ways by the emerging group of next gen donors. This means the learning journeys that these donors take will have huge consequences for field, and for every cause and community they might support. This session will explore the big questions facing any program designed to facilitate next gen philanthropic development, and offer practical guidance for tackling these questions. Panelists include a lead staff member from Greater Houston Community Foundation, which has created a suite of next gen learning and engagement programs that now serve as a national model, as well as the authors of a new report based on the Houston case and an analysis of other programs around the country.

  • Michael Moody, Ph.D., Frey Foundation Chair for Family Philanthropy, Grand Valley State University
  • Robyn Schein, Senior Director, 21/64
  • Jennifer Touchet, CAP®, VP of Personal & Family Philanthropy, Greater Houston Community Foundation

Philanthropy Always Sounds Like Someone Else: A Portrait Report of High Net Worth Donors of Color
The story of philanthropy in the United States has not been fully told for it has been told historically as a largely white story, a largely inherited wealth story, and in recent years, as a largely billionaires’ story. Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) with high net worth (HNW) and ultra high net worth (UHNW) have been an apparitional presence across the philanthropic sector. Seen as anomalies rather than animators, hiding in plain sight, their giving, values, and experiences as donors have not been widely seen or studied. Join Hali Lee (founder, Radiant Strategies), lead researcher on this qualitative study that interviewed over 100 HNW donors of color across the US, for this conversation on themes, highlights, and implications.

Facing Race: Philanthropic Advising with White Donors

Join Ali Sirkus Brody for an update on SFF’s journey to engaging donors in racial justice and tips for coaching white donors on race. Ali has led several Unconscious Whiteness trainings with Northern California Grantmakers. We will learn from SFF’s historic work on this topic, Ali’s consulting with donors and trustees, and her experience across the field.

Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Equity—continuing our ongoing learning about how to embed these values and practices into our philanthropic advising.

Peer-Sharing Breakouts—two sets of breakouts, one based on stage of family philanthropy programming and one based on topical area. Likely topics include working with specific generations, family learning road maps, structures of services and programs, and effective tools and practices for family meetings.

Please note: This is a standalone workshop, not connected with any other NCFP events.
