With the creation of new family foundations, donor-advised funds, and supporting organizations still flourishing, many advisors to today’s donors (and often donors themselves) wonder, ‘What kind of information/ assistance/ inspiration/ support do new founding donors want these days?’ Advisors benefit from knowing what the concerns of new donors are, and new donors benefit from understanding what other donors are seeking. In a session for donors, their advisors, and all those who work with philanthropic families, Jan McElwee and Deanne Stone, authors of What California Donors Want: In Their Own Voices (National Center for Family Philanthropy, 2004), and Shirley Fredricks, Chair of the California Donors Advisory Committee, discuss the goals, motivations, and challenges facing a new generation of philanthropists.
