Where Philanthropy Is Headed
…how to capitalize on donors’ strategic and independent approach to giving
Donors are the biggest disruptive force in fundraising today. Decisive and ambitious, donors have much more money to give but they’re only willing to release it on their terms. So, what does that mean for fundraisers? How can Development professionals remain relevant in a giving world that is rapidly changing?
In this keynote address, Penelope sets the stage for Development Day by drawing from her 2018 research with 12,000 donors. In Where Philanthropy Is Headed, Penelope references the very different giving patterns and communications preferences of young, middle age and older donors, how they are researching causes before giving, and which donors admit to holding their philanthropy back. Penelope presents a compelling, evidence-based case that challenges fundraisers to work differently to help donors maximize their philanthropy and to ensure a more fulfilling career for themselves.
