Transfer of Wealth™
With the 2017 acquisition of the nationally recognized nonprofit Center for Rural Entrepreneurship, LOCUS provides a range of research and analysis related to community development philanthropy, including Transfer of Wealth (TOW), to help place-focused foundations identify and implement strategies that create more prosperous communities.
A TOW analysis estimates the wealth that will transfer across generations over the next 10 and 50 years. Foundations across the country have used their TOW numbers as a call to action for endowment building. This untapped resource is a useful tool for foundations committed to economic development and local impact investing.
