NextGen Donors and the New Golden Age of Philanthropy | Social Velocity

NextGen Donors and the New Golden Age of Philanthropy | Social Velocity | Organization Management | Scoop.it

A new report from the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy and 21/64 gives us the first real glimpse into the minds of the next generation of philanthropists, and it’s fascinating.

Millennial and GenX donors (wealthy individuals, or individuals who will inherit wealth, born between 1964-2000) will control more philanthropic dollars than any previous generation. And more importantly, they think about giving in very different ways than their parents or grandparents did. Which means nonprofits need to pay attention.

Tom Fair's insight:

If donors are changing, nonprofits need to change their approach to their donors.
