The Next Generation of Giving

November 8, 2018

We can’t ignore it: Around the world, donor acquisition rates have fallen. Traditional channels alone just aren’t cutting it anymore. Events are more difficult to make successful than ever. And supporter engagement and communication preferences are becoming much more complex and demanding. Clearly, the traditional art and science of fundraising must adapt, or we might be in real trouble.

Find out how your organization can tap into the next generation of giving. At this luncheon, we’ll explore groundbreaking data from theNext Generation of Giving report series, the Blackbaud Institute for Philanthropic Impact’s definitive, multi-country study that reveals multichannel preferences and charitable habits of Generation Z, Millennials, Generation X, Baby Boomers, and Matures. We’ll talk you through the new dos and don’ts of omnichannel and on-trend multi-generational fundraising.

If you’re wondering about multi-channel and multi-generational fundraising, brand building and advocacy programs, social media, acquiring new and younger donors – or you just want to know how different generations of supporters and activists really feel about social impact – this fact-filled luncheon is for you! We’ll answer the following questions and more: Is there a generational difference in sustainer giving? Do young people care about direct mail? Can I make a digital fundraising strategy work for donors over 65 years old? Where do crowdfunding and giving circles fit in?
