‘Next Gen Giving’ Summit to feature conversation with regional leaders around local future philanthropy

Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky is partnering with the Kentucky Philanthropy Initiative to host a half-day conference — Next Gen Giving Summit — that will take a deep dive into big questions surrounding the next wave of charitable giving.

Panels and presentations throughout the morning will take a comprehensive look at what makes our future givers 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.

“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.”

The event will also feature keynote speaker Una Osili, Ph.D., an economist with significant experience in research and policy in the fields of household behavior and economic policy. She is also associate dean for research and international programs at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, the world’s first school dedicated to increasing the understanding of philanthropy and improving its practice worldwide.
