What does a next-generation philanthropist look like? For blogger Emily Davis of EDA Consulting, the answer is Alan Frosh. Frosh, a member of the Fellowship Class of 2005, is a sixth-generation Denver native who began his philanthropic journey as a child growing up in a household where the Jewish values of tzedakah (charity or giving back) and tikkun olam (repairing the world) were very much present.
Frosh recently offered insight into his intentional giving and shared lessons learned from his plethora of experience, which includes serving as the founding chair of the Gordian Fund, chair of the Daniels Legacy Circle, and as a member of the Kent Denver School Alumni Association Board and the El Pomar Fellowship Alumni Advisory Board. In Frosh’s interview, he also addresses the future of philanthropy as his generation comes of age and continues to make its mark on the nonprofit sector.
