Voices of Intergenerational Catholic Philanthropy

This event took take place on Tuesday, September 26, 2023.


How do you bring younger generations into your charitable legacy — and ensure your faith and values carry on?

Many Catholic families who practice generosity look to the next generation to carry on their philanthropic legacies. Intergenerational philanthropy can offer a beautiful opportunity to pass on your values to your children, grandchildren, and beyond. It also presents unique benefits and challenges, especially when family members have varying faith or Church experiences.

This event, presented by the Catholic Community Foundation of Minnesota (CCF) in partnership with FADICA, offers families a venue to explore best practices, ask critical questions, and gain insights from others who practice family philanthropy.
