The Joy of Philanthropy: Celebrating the Generations

“Multi-generational philanthropy” is a hot topic at giving’s epicenter. Join the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta on Tuesday, May 1 to explore what multi-generational philanthropy means for you at one of Atlanta’s most striking family legacy landmarks, the historic Rhodes Hall. Multi-generational expert Dr. Phil Gwoke will share the tenets and tools that propel multi-generational giving forward in a very special evening for our donors.

An internationally recognized speaker, Dr. Gwoke shares history, wisdom and the inspiration of the ages through humor, research and generational expertise. From traditionalist to boomer, genX’er to millennial – learn about the commonalities that connect us, the differences that drive us and how to bridge diverse points of view in your extended family. Let’s learn how generations can work together to accomplish audacious philanthropy!
