Next Gen Philanthropists (Dutch Days)

Thu, July 12, 10:30am to 12:00pm, Room, Auditorium

Session Submission Type: Roundtable Discussion


Giving circles are an example of a new type of philanthropic engagement. But what motivates the next gen philanthropists? Do they differ from traditional donors? Are they Game Changers or Game Breakers? New endowed foundations are established by younger and entrepreneurial founders. To what extent are these foundations driven by different drivers? Also crowdfunding might be an example of a new expression of philanthropic behavior. Although the phenomenon ”crowdfunding” isn’t new, the growing possibilities to make a difference as an individual for an specific (private) goal, increases awareness of the impact of private initiative, including the economic value of “giving time”. These questions are central in this round table.
