The Great Transfer of Wealth

Historic Opportunity for Estate Planning to Transform Our Community

April 12, 2023
Broward, like communities across the country, is in the midst of a historic transfer of wealth that could transform our community through the power of endowed giving.

Our country is undergoing a historic transfer of wealth, between baby boomers – America’s wealthiest generation – and their loved ones.

In Broward County alone, a staggering $55 billion is projected to change hands over the next decade, according to a study commissioned by the Florida Philanthropic Network. That grows to an unprecedented $664 billion – of homes, businesses, investments and other transferred wealth – over 50 years.

This life-changing, economic phenomenon for many people in Broward is also an opportunity to transform our community through a potential increase in charitable giving.

If Broward residents commit just 5 percent of this 10-year transfer of wealth to local philanthropy, that could create nearly $3 billion in new charitable endowments. Achieving $3 billion in new endowments could generate $150 million in annual grants to tackle growing needs in our community for generations to come.

Because endowments grow through careful investment, they create sustainable, permanent support to tackle today’s big challenges and shape a brighter future.

In Broward, an infusion of another $150 million in endowed, philanthropic support each year would be a gamechanger for health care, affordable housing, education, the arts, seniors, our environment and many other opportunities to make life better in our community.
