Updated Transfer of Wealth Study Release set for November 2
News Conference Available Live Online
In 2002, NCF produced the first county-by-county analysis of the intergenerational Transfer of Wealth currently happening in our nation. Since then, the Transfer of Wealth has been a powerful tool in helping affiliated funds secure planned gifts and build endowments.
That study has now been updated with new Census data and improved methodology. The results show that the Transfer of Wealth is an even greater opportunity than previously estimated.
On Wednesday, November 2, 2011 at 2 p.m. CT, NCF will hold a news conference to discuss key findings of its 2011 Transfer of Wealth Study. The Study provides estimates of the amount of wealth that will pass from one generation to the next and timing of estate transfer over the next 50 years. The Study provides analysis on a statewide, regional and county level. You can watch the news conference live online here: http://netnebraska.org/television/stream/boardroom4.html
If you are in the Lincoln area, you can attend the news conference at Nebraska Educational Telecommunications (NET) Building, 1800 North 33rd Street (Just north of 33rd & Holdrege), in Lincoln. The news conference will be held in the Boardroom.
