Insights by Wendy Ulaszek


Philanthropy in Complex, Multi-Generational Families

For many, family philanthropy presents an opportunity to create a shared experience, unifying the
family by working together toward a lasting legacy of impact. Family philanthropy can also give
participants an opportunity to explore and cultivate their personal—and sometimes separate—
philanthropic passions


How to approach Philanthropy

About one-quarter of our work relates to family philanthropy, most often as part of a complex family enterprise or family office.
