Susan Crites Price, Philanthropy Day Luncheon Keynote SpeakerCFSOMD is pleased to announce this year's Keynote Speaker will be Susan Crites Price, author of Generous Genes: Raising Caring Kids in a Digital Age (2015, Majestic Oak Press), will share her insights on how the online world offers new opportunities for families to teach and engage young people in giving. You'll learn how to be “generosity coaches” for the next generation as they navigate both digital and real world philanthropy.

Generous Genes: Raising Caring Kids in a Digital AgeSusan Crites Price, a Washington, DC-based writer and speaker, is an expert on family philanthropy. She is the author or co-author of seven books including Generous Genes: Raising Caring Kids in a Digital Age, (Majestic Oak Press, 2015), and The Giving Family: Raising Our Children to Help Others (Council on Foundations, 2001, revised 2003). Susan is a frequent speaker to groups around the country on the subject of instilling philanthropic values in children.

Susan has been interviewed on “Oprah,” “NBC’s Today,” the CBS “Early Show,” and numerous other television and radio broadcasts and by many newspapers and magazines.

Susan was vice president of the National Center for Family Philanthropy from 2007 to 2011, and prior to that was the managing director of the Family Foundation Services Department at the Council on Foundations.

With her husband Tom, Susan co-authored The Working Parents Help Book (Peterson’s, 1994, rev. ed., 1996), a practical guide to juggling kids and careers. It won a Parents’ Choice Award and was a selection of the Scholastic Book Club.

Praise for Susan's Presentations:

"Susan Price gently but firmly guides her audiences to a deeper understanding of wealthy families and the miraculous healing power of family philanthropy."

--Jennifer Leonard, President & CEO, Rochester Area Community Foundation

"Susan was our keynote speaker at several donor, youth, and advisor programs last May (2015). Her message about working together as a family and understanding Generation Z and the digital age resonated with a wide variety of audiences over the weekend. She was a pleasure to work with in the months leading up to our programs.  She spent time really getting to know our organization and our target audiences.  She also invested a lot of time in getting to know the youth panelists she worked with on her keynote session.  We regularly refer to her new book and have continued to give them as gifts to donor families who are engaging youth in their philanthropy."

--Jennifer Touchet, Director of Family Philanthropy, Greater Houston Community Foundation
