Community Foundations Network Topical Call: Youth Philanthropy Engagement and Adaptations

Join the Sillerman Center’s Youth Philanthropy Project staff to better understand the current landscape of youth philanthropy and youth engagement through insights from their State of Youth Philanthropy (2020-2021) survey, conducted in collaboration with the Foundation for MetroWest. Learn about what their data show about the way programs have adapted throughout of COVID-19, and the social and racial injustices faced across the country, and the barriers they encountered throughout the past year. These programs engage community members, and young donors, and make great social change. How can you learn from shifting models and adaptations to guide your own philanthropy or next-gen engagement? How have these changes influenced future youth philanthropy programs and participatory grantmaking models? This discussion will provide case studies, data from the recent survey, and learnings not shared in the June workshop breakout discussion.
