National Retreats

Making Money Make Change

Making Money Make Change 2017 will be at Stony Point Center in New York.

Making Money Make Change (MMMC) is Resource Generation’s annual national 100+ person gathering for young people with wealth (ages 18-35) who believe in social change.

MMMC is a confidential space to explore issues related to wealth, privilege, philanthropy, and participation in grassroots movements for justice and equality. Through workshops, discussions and community-building activities, participants support, challenge, and inspire each other to align their resources with their values and work for personal and societal transformation.

“I feel like I am coming more from a place of abundance. I am increasing my giving 10 fold!” – 2016 participant

“I feel powerful in starting conversations with family and friends and integrating social justice values into my financial plan.” – 2016 participant

“Taking 4 days to explore my family and my source of wealth, then to name how much I have, understand some of the systemic issues in our country, and talk out loud to like-minded and like-resourced people certainly moved me toward action.” – 2016 participant

“I felt that all the programming that I attended touched on something that was relevant to my experience-I never felt lost or isolated.” – 2016 participant

Transforming Family Philanthropy Retreat

Transforming Family Philanthropy (TFP) (formerly known as Creating Change Through Family Philanthropy) is Resource Generation’s national gathering for young people who participate in their families’ philanthropy and are committed to progressive social change.

The weekend is spent in workshops, discussions and dynamic full group spaces to delve into issues of wealth, philanthropy, family and social change, and gain the skills and community to further strengthen the next generation of social change philanthropists. At this moment in history, it is more important than ever that young people involved in family philanthropy come together to build community, learn and leverage resources for social change.

“The participants were courageous and inspiring, the speakers were excellent and the space created by the staff was enlivening and creative. There was content for people at the beginning of their journey and those who have been engaged for years – and we got to learn from each other.”

– 2010 Participant
