Igniting the Spark: Examples of Next Gen Engagement Strategies, The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta

National Center for Family Philanthropy, Youth Philanthropy Connect (YPC)

In 2001, The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta launched the Center for Family Philanthropy. The focus of the Center was two-fold: (1) to provide a higher level of services to philanthropists with donor advised funds of $250,000 or more, or a planned gift of $1M or more; and (2) to engage donors with families in philanthropy. There are approximately 200 donor members of the Center. This next gen case study describes their history of youth initiatives, and current youth engagement strategies used by the foundation to connect with youth in the communities they serve.
