In January 2019, the Johnson Center hosted the fifth National Summit on Family Philanthropy: Our Donor Journeys and Why They Matter. At this two-day event, diverse philanthropists shared their personal giving journeys and offered lessons they thought would be especially useful for other donors.
These stories were shared during our three plenary panels: Partners on the Giving Journey, Journeys After Trauma, and Next Gen Social Justice Journeys. At the time, we filmed each panel to capture the important and moving conversations that happened there. We are proud to present these videos as Summit Replay.
Summit Replay: Next Gen Social Justice Journeys
Many rising “next gen” donors have a deep passion for social justice, and as a result, they face new kinds of learning challenges (and opportunities) as they develop their philanthropic identities. They still want to make a difference and find meaning in giving, like other donors, but they also want to address systemic issues, confront power and privilege, and work closely with historically marginalized communities.
In this panel discussion, we hear from four next gen donors about how they are forging these new paths.
- Valaida Fullwood, New Generation of African American Philanthropists
- Kim Kaupe, Andrus Family Fund
- David Roswell, Roswell Foundation
- A. Sparks, Masto Foundation
- Jeanné Isler, National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy
