"Wealth Transfer and Potential for Philanthropy in the Boston Metropolitan Area Technical Report."
John J. Havens and Paul G. Schervish. March 2013.

Our research on wealth transfer and charitable giving in the Boston Area revealed that although the Great Recession of 2007-2011 will resonate for years to come in the philanthropic sector, Greater Boston Households and estates could give between $600 billion to well over $1 trillion to charities between now and 2061 depending on growth rates of the economy. This technical report presents the findings and describes in detail methodology and data contained within the updated wealth transfer model used for this Bosotn Area wealth study.
