Authenticity, Experiences and Patience: Cultivating Millennial Donors
Thursday, July 11th, 2019
2:15 PM - 3:30 PM: Breakout 3
Are you looking for younger donors? Think it can't be done?
Think again and come to this session to discover organizations that are successfully homing in on millennials in efforts to broaden the demographics of their donor base and set a foundation for future fundraising success. From National Audubon Society's Young Birders Campaign that illustrates the joy of birding to young urban professionals through experiential marketing … to the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Next Gen Preservation campaign promoting diversity of our cultural history and Facebook birthday campaigns, organizations are finding new and novel ways to meet millennials where they are and bring them onto their files. And we're eager to show you how you can connect with younger donors too.
