Purposeful Philanthropy is the art of thoughtfully, intentionally and purposefully integrating the passion, spirit and commitment of philanthropy into the fabric of your family system.

Purposeful Philanthropy is an incredibly powerful tool that can be used not only to create lasting positive change in our communities and in the world but also within our own families.  Family philanthropy empowers beneficiaries and offsets the fear and danger of entitlement.

It is our belief that a family’s true wealth lies in the wisdom, values, virtues, life lessons, social, cultural and spiritual values that are passed on from one generation to the next. Purposeful Philanthropy can strengthen these core values and virtues.  Furthermore, we recognize that a shared philanthropic journey creates not only compassion but also resiliency and a commitment to purposeful self-sufficiency in the next generations of our family.

The Purposeful Planning Institute brings to light new, innovative and cutting edge ideas in Philanthropy through select PPI teleconferences, in our annual Rendezvous and in various workshops and we can assist you with incorporating Purposeful Philanthropy into your life, your practice, and your work with legacy families and families in business.
