Discussion at 2016 GPC Members Meeting

Next Generation

GPC Affinity Group

The Next Generation Group is an affinity group of the Global Philanthropists Circle. The Group supports deeper engagement between younger philanthropists within the GPC as well as those who represent the second or third generation in their family’s philanthropic journey.

Members are supported to transform their ideas into actionable philanthropy. Peer gatherings provide an opportunity for Group members to share experiences or topics of interest and discuss their unique role in their family’s philanthropy and social investment. Inter-generational giving, the transfer of values, and family dynamics are regular topics of discussion and learning.

The GPC Next Generation Group has three primary objectives:

  • Education creating opportunities for members to learn from each other and from resources inside and outside of the Synergos network;
  • Connection – connecting GPC members to each other and seeding opportunities for collaboration and partnership;
  • Impact – enhancing the impact of members’ own investments through an enhanced understanding of personal purpose, inter-generational giving, the transfer of values, and family dynamics.

In 2017, Next Gen members convened at 7 events annually across the globe.
