In Times of Growth: Planning for an Influx of Assets

An influx of assets is a powerful transition point in your philanthropy. With rising resources comes the budding potential to do more of what you’re already doing—or, perhaps, try something new. Either way, additional resources will often provide your foundation with new options for making a difference according to your foundation’s mission.

With more money comes opportunity as well as challenge. For family foundations—particularly those for whom the influx comes as a complete surprise, or who haven’t planned in advance—a change in asset size can feel downright disorienting. This Passages Issue Brief will help you plan now for growth tomorrow, and manage change if you’re in the midst of it today.
