Transfer of Wealth

Iowa Transfer of Wealth

Between the years of 2000-2049, Iowa can expect to see $531.7 billion transfer from one generation to the next through probate estates. In 2010 through 2019 alone, $74.43 billion is expected to pass to heirs.

Clayton County Transfer of Wealth

During years 2010-2019, $ 385 million is expected to transfer from one generation to the next through probate estates. Between 2000-2050, the estimated transfer is $2.5 billion.


Transfer of Wealth Clayton County State of Iowa
2010-2019 $ 385 million $ 74.43 billion
2000-2049 $ 2.5 billion $ 531.7 billion

If just five percent of the projected transfer between now and 2050 could be invested at the Community Foundation in an endowed Community Fund, nearly $125 million would be endowed. Figuring a five percent grant payout, an estimated $ 6.3 million could be available annually to improve the quality of life in our community and secure our future.
