A Vision for and Brief History of Youth Philanthropy

Association of Fundraising Professionals

AFP offers this report as both an evaluation and marker of the state of the youth philanthropy field and as a record of the Youth in Philanthropy Summit -- its proceedings, outcomes and next steps. Significant progress was achieved; partnerships were forged; a future was envisioned; and each of the participants agreed to ownership of results. The Summit provided direction for what needs to happen for youth philanthropy to become both recognized as a movement and fully integrated into the national and international consciousness.

This document has three primary purposes: to offer information on youth philanthropy, its origins and history; to present the development of the Summit; and to document the key themes and outcomes.
