Family Philanthropy

January 18, 2012

Being civically and financially responsible are habits formed in youth that last a lifetime. Why is it so important to instill these values in our children? How can we encourage generosity and civic-mindedness within families and kids? As discussed in the Giving in L.A. blog during the holidays, giving is multiplied when you do it together – as a group or family.

These questions and the topic of family philanthropy will be discussed (and hopefully answered) at a special event at the studios of KPCC tonight.

In partnership with our Development Department, Jon and Eileen Gallo, co-authors and principals of Gallo Consulting, will discuss ways that parents, grandparents, and even friends can help kids – young and old – be civically engaged and financially responsible. Internationally-known experts on children, families and money, the Gallos have written two books and established The Gallo Institute, a national organization offering education and counsel to families and financial advisors around issues of families, children and money.

This is a great opportunity to hear renowned experts discuss practical ways to promote success, generosity, and responsibility among children.
