Do you have or expect to come into inherited wealth? Do you have earned wealth? Or are you the partner of someone with wealth? Want to work with others to create a more just and equitable society? Would you like to talk with peers about the opportunities and challenges of having wealth? Interested in strategic philanthropy, responsible consumption, and/or effective social change activism? Want to use your resources to transform society and promote innovative social change? If you answered yes, then The 2008 Making Money Make Change: Many Stories, Many Strategies (MMMC) conference is for you!

MMMC brings together young people with wealth, future wealth and class privilege for a four-day retreat every autumn. MMMC is a safe, confidential environment to talk freely about challenges and opportunities related to having financial wealth and class privilege. Participants have or expect to have wealth from a variety of sources and circumstances. Partners of people with wealth are also welcome. Through workshops, panels and discussions, participants inform, support, inspire and challenge each other. Programming covers a range of topics including the following:
 
 - personal stories of having wealth and privilege
 - technical knowledge about socially responsible investments and strategic philanthropy
 - resources for those working within family philanthropy
 - roles young people with wealth can play in movements working for social, environmental and economic justice
