Breakfast, Networking & Educational Series - January 17, 2019
7:30am - 10:30am The Hope Club, 6 Benevolent Street Providence
Program: Presentation of The 2018 U.S. Trust Study of High Net Worth Philanthropy
Bill Jarvis, Managing Director of U.S. Trust, will present the latest findings from the 2018 High Net Worth Donor Study. The 2018 U.S. Trust® Study of High Net Worth Philanthropy (the “Study”) is the seventh in a biennial series of research reports on the giving and volunteering practices of wealthy households in the United States. Based on a nationally representative random sample of wealthy households, the Study is an authoritative source of information on wealthy Americans’ philanthropic attitudes and practices. Wealthy donors reported that their greatest challenge, when it comes to charitable giving, is identifying what causes they care about and deciding where to donate (45%). Other charitable giving challenges include understanding how much they can afford to give (37%), allocating time to volunteer with the organizations they care about (30%) and monitoring giving to ensure it has its intended impact (30%). Join us for this informative session that will give you lots of things to think about.
Our second session will be an interactive discussion with local leaders in the Rhode Island Giving Community, led by Board member Robin Dziuba, focusing on how we work with different donors. Many of the topics from the first session will serve as a springboard for our second session, and we welcome the opportunity to share experiences.
Please note: The attendance fee for non-members of PPPRI is now $60.
