  • Alliance of Community Foundations Releases Transfer of Wealth Study

    Missouri Transfer of Wealth Study from CF Ozarks on Vimeo.

    The CFO joined with other community foundations across Missouri today to release “Wealth in Missouri and its Counties,” a study that shows the upcoming transfer of wealth that will occur here over the next 10-50 years.

    In just the next 10 years, Ozarks members of the “greatest generation” and the first wave of the baby boomers that followed will transfer an estimated $47.2 billion of accumulated wealth to their heirs and others. For Missouri as a whole, that transfer of wealth will reach $134 billion. Over 50 years, that amount increases to a staggering $565 billion for the Ozarks and $1.5 trillion for Missouri as a whole.

    The Alliance of Missouri Community Foundations partnered with the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a grant to commission the study by the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship in Lincoln, Neb.

    For the complete study, including results for each county in Missouri, click here.

    This nationwide trend is considered the largest-ever transfer of wealth between generations in the history of the United States. It’s the result of the “greatest generation” returning from World War II to rebuild America and, in the process, accumulate wealth that is being passed down through succeeding generations.

    The goal of the Alliance is to encourage donors to consider a “5 percent solution” by including community-based philanthropic interests as 5 percent of their estate planning. In the Ozarks, that would capture $2.3 billion over the 10-year period, which would create $118 million a year in charitable resources using a 5 percent payout per year.
