The One Percent Club, a group of wealthy Minnesotans who pledge one percent of their net worth to charity each year, is looking to connect with the next generation of philanthropic leaders.
The Star Tribune's Jean Hopfensperger reports
that the club, which began in 1997, recently entered a partnership with Social Venture Partners and is seeking younger, more tech-savvy board members and partners.
"Minnesota has been a national leader in so many categories--the arts, education, health--in large part because of philanthropy," said Peter Heegard, a club member and retired Wells Fargo exec. "If we don't keep trying to expand philanthropy, that could change."
