The Future of Jewish Giving

We have written this report to better understand what kind of philanthropy we can expect from the rising generations of major Jewish donors in Generations X and Y. Do they care about Jewish causes, or are they disinterested in particularistic giving? Will they continue the giving legacies and strategies of their parents and grandparents, or do they want to go in new directions? Have they been welcomed into their families’ philanthropy to perpetuate family legacies, or left out of leadership roles as their parents and grandparents continue to make the majority of family giving decisions?

Connected to Give

Connected to Give offers important new insights on religion and American charitable giving, challenging assumptions about where religious donors make charitable contributions and offering comprehensive information about behaviors and motivations among religious and non-religious Americans. Connected to Give: Synagogues and Movements, the forthcoming fourth report in the series, explores charitable giving by American Jews who are members of Jewish congregations and/or identify with a religious movement, with a special focus on Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform affiliates.

Women Give 2013

In Women Give 2013, we investigate two ways in which parents teach children about giving and whether girls and boys respond differently to those approaches. We examine whether differences exist by age, income, and race. We use longitudinal data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) and its Child Development Supplement (CDS) across two time periods within the same households to assess whether talking to children about charity and role-modeling charitable giving has an effect on a child’s giving to charity.

This series complements research conducted by 21/64 and the Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University released earlier this year and our related GrantCraft analysis. In this episode, we learn what characteristics, values, and mentality shape next generation donors, and how research was conducted to learn about this group's giving tendencies.

Next Gen Donors: Who Are They?

This is the release of the first episode in a four week series called Shaping the Future of Philanthropy: Voices from Next Gen Donors. The series was created as part of a collaboration between GrantCraft, 21/64, and the Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University based on research released earlier this year and our related GrantCraft analysis. In this episode, we learn what characteristics, values, and mentalities shape next generation donors, and how research was conducted to learn about this group’s giving tendencies. As an active member of the philanthropy community who identifies as part of the subject demographic, I thought I’d share some of my own observations about who we are.

Opportunity Index

Opportunity Index measures a number of indicators at the county and state levels that contribute to economic opportunity and mobility. We include indicators that have a demonstrated connection to expanding or restricting economic mobility and opportunity, which together help measure the opportunities that are present in different communities. The Opportunity Index is produced by Opportunity Nation in partnership with Measure of America.
