Read it here: www.issuelab.org/resources/25294/25294.pdf
LEARN: Ways family members influence each other’s giving behaviors as we examine
How closely do parents and grandparents match their children and grandchildren in terms of their philanthropic priorities? How do socio-demographic factors explain the similarity or dissimilarity in philanthropic priorities between parents and their children?
