‘Next Gen Giving’ summit keynoter named; Horizon, KPI partner on second regional gathering

An economist who is internationally recognized as an expert on economic development and philanthropy will be the keynote speaker for the second annual NKY Summit on Philanthropy.

The theme for the summit is “Next Gen Giving,” presented by the Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky and the Kentucky Philanthropy.

Dr. Una Osili

It will be held May 6 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the St. Elizabeth Training & Educational Center in Erlanger. It is open to the public.

Una O. Osili is associate dean for Research and International Programs at Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and dean’s fellow at Mays Family Institute on Diverse Philanthropy. The Lilly School is the world’s first dedicated to increasing the understanding of philanthropy and improving its practice worldwide.

She leads the research and publication of Giving USA, the annual report on American philanthropy and has pioneered new approaches to using data to better understand philanthropic trends.

The summit will build on solid research produced by the Kentucky Philanthropy Initiative’s groundbreaking Transfer of Wealthy study for the state.

“Northern Kentucky is on the brink of a historic transfer of wealth, with an anticipated $9 billion being passed down to the next generation over the next 10 years,” said Horizon Community Funds President Nancy Grayson.

“As a community, we must be proactive in our approach to this new pool of philanthropists.”

Other panels and presentations throughout the half-day event will take a comprehensive look at what makes our future philanthropists tick, what life is like as a young funder, and how employers can attract and retain talent through incentivizing employees to give time, talent, and resources to the causes they care about most.
