Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Fundraising and the Next Generation

Tools for Engaging the Next Generation of Philanthropists

As a savvy fundraising leader, you understand that successful and sustained philanthropy is an issue for all generations. To access every prospective contribution possible, long-term planning and diversified strategies are necessary to allow you to engage younger donors and staff. Packed with worksheets and handouts, Fundraising and the Next Generation brings you up to date on the cases, research, opportunities, and challenges for reaching philanthropy's next generation.

Starting with an introduction to fundraising from multiple generations, in particular Generation X and the Millennials/Generation Y, Fundraising and the Next Generation shows you how to engage your staff and volunteers in conversations about fundraising across the generations and equips you with the tools you need to:

  • Use social media as an entry point to new donors

  • Ask the hard questions, self-examine, and integrate strategies that will better serve your organization's mission for long-term sustainability

  • Give everyone in your organization—not just the board and staff leadership—a voice

  • Invite the feedback of your donors, your "junior" staff, and your volunteers

  • Go on a listening tour to pinpoint your organizational strengths and weaknesses

  • Gain insight into the motivations and opinions of next-generation givers to help expand the focus of your fundraising efforts

  • Explore how your organization can better use the next generation of volunteers to support the mission of your organization

Multigenerational prospecting, cultivation, and stewardship is a process; it doesn't come simply because you clicked a button, conducted a happy hour, or invited one young person onto your organization's board of directors. Now you can discover practical strategies for cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of Gen X and Y philanthropists using the new technologies and traditional tools found in Fundraising and the Next Generation.

"Think you've got the next generation figured out? Think again. This book is packed with studies, stories, and stats to help you effectively engage Gen X and Y in meaningful giving. Read it and you'll get more than a few new dollars today. You'll build new levels of support that last for years to come."—Deirdre Maloney, author of The Mission Myth and President of Momentum

"I've dog-eared nearly half of the pages in this treasure of a book. At once it is an insider's guide to the motivations of the next generation of givers, a tool box for engaging them, and the best primer on social media and fundraising I have seen to date. While full of practical wisdom, it is also a collection of stories and interviews with a host of thoughtful young donors. A must-read for donors and fundraisers alike." —Lisa Parker, President, Lawrence Welk Family Foundation Principal, Family Circle Advisors
