Hi all,

To what extent has the EA community sought to introduce young high-wealth philanthropists as described in the below article to EA? It could be particularly useful in cases where the parents disagree with their children on politics. https://www.vox.com/recode/2020/1/13/20827389/young-donors-philanthropists-resource-generation-politics-trump

There is Generation Pledge, with the below description.

"Generation Pledge exists to unlock billions of dollars that can be deployed to fund the most effective solutions to the world’s greatest challenges.

We work with a community of heirs who are committed to doing good with the resources they have available. We offer opportunities to learn, connect, collaborate and take action to create large-scale positive impact."

Effective Giving works with HNW donors across the age spectrum -- most notably, Ben Delo, who isn't a young heir but still seems much younger than the median billionaire philanthropist.
