New donors, including those in the Baby Boom and “X” generations, are involving their children in the family’s giving and volunteering at younger ages than previous generations. In past years, many children of donors learned about the family’s philanthropic activities, for example, when they were well into adulthood, or after their parents’ deaths.

Today, many parents include their young children in philanthropic activities as a way to pass on their personal values, provide shared experiences, establish traditions, and enjoy a satisfying and fulfilling family venture together.
