For family business owners, preparing the next generation to someday join your business is an important goal. Teaching children the financial skills required is a key first step.


Our partners at Fiduciary Trust International understand the benefits of educating the next generation so children are ready and able to carry on your legacy. In fact, Fiduciary Trust has identified a link between financial education and philanthropy that can be helpful to you and your family.


Exposure to philanthropic work can build confidence, professional connections and cultural awareness. Philanthropy offers lessons in money management and organization. It provides a hands-on way to build business and financial acumen. It also enhances professional skills, such as communication and accountability.

Getting your children involved in philanthropy is an ideal way to build a range of skills in your children while supporting your community. Encouraging them to volunteer, letting them recommend organizations your family can support and helping them make their own donation decisions are just a few ways to get them started.

As we prepare for what promises to be a pivotal year for America, we’re asking you to consider becoming a supporter.

The need for fact-based reporting of issues important to family offices and successful individuals and protecting a lifetime of savings has never been greater. Now more than ever, family offices and successful individuals are under fire. That’s why Policy and Taxation Group is passionately working to increase the awareness of issues important to family offices and successful individuals, while continuing to strengthen our presence on Capitol Hill.

Policy and Taxation Group is the Voice for Family Offices and Successful Individuals in Washington, DC focused exclusively on the critical tax and economic policies that impact them.

Since 1995, Policy and Taxation Group has been the leading advocacy group working to reduce and eliminate estate tax, gift tax, and generation skipping transfer tax while blocking increased income tax and capital gains taxes, the creation of a wealth tax, and other hostile tax policies that punish hardworking taxpayers and success.
