Five trends shaping philanthropy’s future: Fundraising in the 2020s

The world of philanthropy is shaped by great economic and demographic trends that impact donor wealth and attitudes.  This session will look at five trends that will shape giving the 2020s:

(1) the rise of the 1% and the .01%;

(2) gender and giving;

(3) growth of permanent charitable capital;

(4) GDPR and fundraising appeals; and,

(5) the bi-coastal economy and its impact on Minnesota

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Development programs that are focused on the new economy and understand how demographic shifts impact their donor base will do well in the decade ahead.  The great shifts in donor bases, gift pyramids and donor motivation are key to success in the decade ahead.  Examples will be given of adaptation to each of the five trends.
