Transformational philanthropy” is a gift that has as profound an impact on the donor who makes it (and often their family) as it does on the organization receiving the gift. Transformational philanthropy is not a function of the size of the gift. It is a function of the passion behind the gift.

A transformational gift turns a transactional donor into a philanthropist and can transform a single transactional donor into a philanthropic, multi-generational family. The organization or fundraising professional who facilitates that desire through multi-generational planning accomplishes several important objectives:

  • Fulfilling the philanthropist’s passions through support of organization(s) that fulfill their passions;
  • Developing a philanthropic spirit in the philanthropist’s children /grandchildren;
  • Strengthening and uniting the family in common cause, which helps the family to remain prosperous enough to continue their philanthropy for multiple generations; and,
  • Creating multi-generational ‘gift streams’ to organizations.

This session will describe the steps to creating a transformational gift, and the one vital question that philanthropic planners often fail to ask.
