Intergenerational Toolkit

Publication Date: September 30, 2012

The Council of Michigan Foundations developed “The Intergenerational Toolkit: Bridging the Generations, A Guide for Family Foundations” in response to member focus groups who identified a need for resources to help engage all generations in the family’s work. This 63-page softcover publication not only helps families understand the varied perspectives from each generation but also offers tips, examples and stories from members on how they are building bridges between the generations in their families. The toolkit also includes a section of carefully designed exercises to identify shared values and to explore common interests, improve communications to help build high quality connections between family members and create more inclusive family foundation meetings.
