AFP Youth in Philanthropy Summit Report: A Vision for and Brief History of Youth Philanthropy
On November 12, 13 and 14, 2006, the Association of Fundraising Professionals convened the AFP Youth in Philanthropy Summit. The Summit brought together 44 representatives, including 10 youth participants, from leading U. S. and Canadian initiatives invested in youth philanthropy programming and research. For the first time, leaders representing five interest groups: K-12 programs, collegiate programs, youth philanthropists, youth grantmakers and youth-serving organizations came together to consider how to collaborate, to chart a course for the future and to engage more young people in philanthropy. This report, A Vision for and Brief History of Youth Philanthropy by Falk and Nissan, was published in December, 2007, as the first in AFP’s new series, Reports on Fundraising and Philanthropy. The report is available as an attachment, below.
