How GenX and Millennial Donors Are Transforming Giving
Presented by Susan Kramer
Recorded: October 12, 2022 @ 1PM
The next generation of rising donors – GenXers and Millennials – will have a transformational impact on the charitable causes we care about.
Who are these NextGen donors?
How will they change giving?
Based on the substantial research of Dr. Michael Moody and Sharna Goldseker, you will gain an understanding of how to engage younger donors, learn about their values, how they’re different from other generations.
Join veteran fundraising consultant Michael Rubin as he draws from this research and applies this data to practical action steps you can use in securing major gifts. You will find that it IS worth our time and that, if approached in the right way, these friends WILL give. We promise a fun, interactive and highly practical session!
What you'll learn:
- Understand GenXers & Millennials, their values, and what drives them to give
- Identify simple steps to begin engagement
- Easy ways to start taking action toward solicitation and gifting
- Longer term innovations to consider when working with NextGen donors
- Learn from each other – what’s working, what’s not
