Patterns and Prospects of Philanthropy

Paul Schervish will summarize the patterns and prospects of charitable giving by income and wealth, focusing especially on the findings from the Boston College Center on Wealth and Philanthropy updated wealth transfer report, A Golden Age of Philanthropy Still Beckons. The study documents the amount of charitable dollars that will result from lifetime giving and final estates over the next 20 and 50 years. Among implications are (1) the clear positive effect of economic growth on charitable giving and (2) the still-to-be determined effects from proposed income and estate-tax changes.
