Joy Hunter Chaillou
Senior Vice President and National Practice Executive
U.S. Trust, New York, NY
Established in 2006, this groundbreaking study, conducted in partnership with The Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University, is the largest and most comprehensive survey to date of the charitable practices and attitudes of wealthy Americans. The 2016 study will explore many of the same issues probed in earlier versions of this research, including how much, where, and why wealthy donors give their time and money. It will also expand into several new areas, such as how and the frequency in which donors measure and monitor the results of their giving. The findings in the 2016 study impact and inform the practices of donors, non-profit organizations and advisors alike. The study’s full report is available at http://www.ustrust.com/philanthropy
