In 1999, Boston College published a study that by 2052 that there would be a wealth transfer of somewhere between $41 – $136 TRILLION from one generation to the next in the U.S. But, is that still valid after two economic downturns? More importantly, how does that translate right here in Central Texas? The Austin Community Foundation joined with the Waco Foundation and the San Antonio Area Foundation to have a Transfer of Wealth study done in Central Texas. Learn the results of that study and the potential impact it could have.
