Session Description:
Nearly 75 million people make up the Millennial generation worldwide, and yet, for many nonprofits, this generation remains an untapped resource for nonprofits. However, because of the Great Transfer of Wealth from Baby Boomers to Gen Xers and Millennials. With the largest generational transfer of wealth in modern history, as well as limited nonprofit resources, nonprofits need to look at the Millennial generation as a source of people, power and philanthropy.  Dr. Holly Hull Miori, an academic teacher, researcher and fundraising professional, she examines the roles that Millennials can and should play in your nonprofits as donors, board members, and volunteers.
