Transfer of Wealth™ Analysis

Transfer of Wealth (TOW) is what occurs when one generation passes on assets to the next. We know that communities and regions need tools and support for moving from understanding their TOW opportunity to developing strategic grant-making capacity and long-term investments that will make a difference in the futures of their communities. Transfer of Wealth™ analysis is one way we bring Empowering Research to community leaders as a decision-making tool.

At the Center, we not only calculate your TOW opportunity, we provide tools to help communities:

  • use locally-controlled assets to support the development strategies that matter,
  • focus efforts on making investments that strengthen the community, and
  • acknowledge the well-being of all community members.

Over the past decade, the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship has conducted Transfer of Wealth (TOW)™ studies in roughly 60% of the counties in the United States.
