“The world of philanthropy is a busy place, yet too few children from families of extreme wealth get involved in strategic giving. Why? The Lifecycle presented here is our attempt to conceive of young philanthropy in a holistic way. Many organizations champion one or more pieces of this model but, in general, the "loop is not closed.” The generosity of young wealth-holders is not rising substantially around the world. What could this model and the dozens of relevant organizations linked from this site do together to “close the loop” and inspire greater, more strategic giving?

Additionally, we recognize that this is just one of many potential models and though it is somewhat chronological, the milestones it describes do not necessarily need to be considered sequentially.“
