There is a great generational shift affecting jobs, families and philanthropy. Today, there are six generations of donors, how do you cater to their unique wants and needs? Nonprofit leaders find it difficult to approach each generation of donors; they either apply one-size-fits-all tactic or only focus on one or two generations. Despite what you may have heard, there are no silver bullets. However, this session will explore the fundamentals of engaging, asking, and thanking each generation of donors.

As a result of this workshop, participants will…

1. Learn giving characteristics and preferences for each generation.

2. Develop tactics for engaging, soliciting, and stewarding each generation

3. Discover the giving approaches common to all generations of donors.
