Family Philanthropy

Family Philanthropy
Next-generation family members will bring new perspective and questions to your family’s discussions about philanthropy. Establishing a multigenerational approach to your giving will change the way your family communicates – and your family’s impact on the community.

Find resources for discussions with your family about giving here. For more tailored resources for your family, contact the Jewish Community Foundation at 858.279.2740 or
