Leveraging the next generation of donors

Posted By Denise McMahan, CausePlanet, Thursday, May 24, 2012

Join us for our author interview with Emily Davis on June 14 at 1 p.m. CST. "Fundraising and the Next Generation: Tools for Engaging the Next Generation of Philanthropists” is Davis' new book that will have you re-examining your prospect profiles.

Millennials represent the biggest population since Boomers and will benefit from the largest transfer of wealth in history. Davis' research illustrates how these active young philanthropists are engaging their peers in support of great causes and promise to be a transformational influence for fundraisers.

Bring your questions for Davis to the interview or submit them when you register. We look forward to touching on the book's highlights through your questions:

 

• Gain insight into the motivations and opinions of "next-gen” donors to help expand your fundraising focus.
• Explore how your organization can better use the next generation of volunteers to support your mission.
• Ask hard questions and integrate strategies that better serve your organization's mission for long-term sustainability.
• Find out how to engage your staff and volunteers in conversations about fundraising across generations.
