Millennial and Gen X “next-gen” donors promise to be the most significant philanthropists ever. As they are now stepping into their roles in family foundations or starting up their own giving vehicles, they are looking to change giving in ways that will fundamentally transform the field. In this webinar, you will learn what years of research on these next-gen donors tell us about how they want to be engaged in family giving, how they are learning and crafting their philanthropic identities, how they think about stewardship and legacy, what they want to change to increase the impact of their family’s philanthropy – and most importantly, what you can do to help them become the donors we all need them to be.
