Family Philanthropy

Multigenerational Giving/Planning Resource


Excerpt from MOW "Your Story" E-newsletter June 2018

Philanthopy is a Great Teacher of Sound Values


 It is a forum for meaningful intergenerational communication.   It helps crystallize how your estate plan can support:

  • Family’s core values
  • Essential opportunities to launch heirs into productive lives
  • Flourishing, responsible and resilient heirs
  • Family harmony and cross-generational engagement
  • A strong and vibrant community
  • How your family chooses to make a positive and enduring impact on the lives of others
  • Contributes to deep satisfaction and peace of mind about the legacy you plan to leave and how you will be remembered.

Values-based gift planning and family discussions can accomplish concrete results.   It provides you with the opportunity to train your heirs and family members in many ways to:

  • Be mission and goal-oriented
  • Think beyond one’s self.
  • Define and reinforce values.
  • Be forward thinking and dream big.
  • Solve problems and plan strategically.
  • Maximize limited resources.
  • Demonstrate and demand accountability.
  • Be active and vigilant citizens.

Other benefits of discussions about giving, based on your family’s values, can be:

  • Giving inoculates heirs from “affluenza,” the dysfunctional relationship with money.
  • Giving provides a psychological boost for those of inherited wealth, who may suffer from guilt and low self-esteem from money they haven’t earned.
  • Giving reduces the sense of separation from the larger world.


You’ve given so much of time volunteering and/or monetary support to Meals on Wheels of Wake County.   We want to help you keep your passion alive and to foster that in the next generation.
