Media Advisory/AFP: Leadership Panel Takes On the Next Generation of Quebec's Philanthropic Leadership

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 14, 2006) - Billions of dollars will come into the Canadian non-profit sector thanks to the transfer of wealth by baby boomers over the next decades. Society's challenge will be to prepare those inheriting this wealth so that its impact will be positive and long lasting on the chartable sector.

To address this issue, more than 50,000 people will take part in approximately 125 events across North America during the week of November 15th to celebrate National Philanthropy Day® and the spirit of giving and volunteering.
