Engaging Younger Generations As Donors, Volunteers and Board Members
A 2010 Forbes article noted that the Millennial Generation – those born between 1982 and 2000 – number close to 80 million individuals and will make up over half of the U.S. workforce by 2015. To be successful in ensuring a stable base of supporters in the future, nonprofits need to develop strategies to build trust and loyalty with Millennials. In addition, nonprofits must become adept at harnessing the talents of younger employees for effective succession planning at all levels.
Research shows that that those from Generation Y (“Millennials”) prefer to get involved with nonprofits that have compelling missions and demonstrated impact. While the Internet and social media play a role, nonprofits need to think beyond creating a Facebook page. Organizations like those we are engaged with will need to attract this group and sustain their interest— the future depends on it!
Don't miss this timely conversation.
Nancy Dunleavy, of Dunleavy and Associates, will discuss the strengths that younger generations (Gen X and Gen Y also known as the Millennials) can bring. She will be joined by a panel of enthusiastic, engaged Gen X and Y’s who will offer their insights into the best ways to engage this generation will prove to be enlightening and inspiring.
