TAMPA, FL – The Community Foundation of Tampa Bay is pleased to announce that our Senior Vice President of Philanthropy, Sheila L. Kinman has become a 21/64 Certified Advisor. “We believe this specialized knowledge and training on a multigenerational approach to family collaboration will provide value to our donors and partners,” said Marlene Spalten, President and CEO.

21/64 Certified Advisors are a network of more than 800 advisors who have been through 101 Multigenerational Training. They span the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. The community of advisors benefit from ongoing professional development including advanced trainings, webinars for continued skill building, a unique network of colleagues, the latest research and articles, a discount on 21/64 tools and referrals.

Established in 2002, 21/64 has evolved into an independent 501c3 nonprofit practice providing multigenerational advising, facilitation, and training for next generation engagement, especially within family philanthropy and other family enterprises.

21/64 is a symbol of a multigenerational approach to family collaboration. “21” symbolizes the time when young people come of age, and “64” an age typically associated with people thinking about their legacies. 21/64 describes the approach in helping multigenerational families work together. The numbers are not meant to be exclusive of people older or younger rather to be representational of the multigenerational scope and inclusive of the five generations above 21 in American society today.

Sheila joined the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay in 2019 and is responsible for connecting donors to philanthropic causes they care about, facilitating legacy and planned gifts and establishing charitable funds. She also works closely with professional advisors and facilitates complex charitable gifts. Sheila has worked within the community foundation industry for more than 10 years, including as Senior Vice President for Philanthropic Giving at the Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties and Chief Advancement Officer at the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines.

Sheila earned her Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy designation in 2013. She is a board member and peer reviewer for the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundation Accreditation program. She is a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa with a BA in communications and public relations.
