AFP New York City Chapter: Engaging Generation YOctober 11, 2012
8:30 - 10:00 AM
The Conference Center, 130 East 59th Street
Acquiring new donors and engaging the millennial generation at your nonprofit—is this the one and same activity? There is more pressure than ever before for non-profits of every type to increase and diversify funding streams and many organizations are looking to either strengthen the engagement of their Millennial (Gen Y) volunteer groups or to launch one for the first time. The hope is that these individuals will be current donors as well as the donors and volunteer leaders of the future, therefore justifying the staff time and organizational resources dedicated to supporting this type of donor and volunteer acquisition activity.
Speakers include: Alexis Feldman, Chair, Cancer Research Institute Young Philanthropists Council; Ben Jablonski, founder of JNFuture, the gateway for the next generation to Jewish National Fund; and Ezra S. Shanken, Director, Emerging Leaders and Philanthropists, UJA Federation of New York. Moderated by Greg Thomas, Campaigns Manager, DoSomething.org.
