Philanthropy’s Next Generation Now

Presented by: Emily Davis

For the first time in history, there are four generations in philanthropy: Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen X and Gen Y (Millennials)… and coming soon Gen Z! Although each generation is philanthropic, they have individual preferences for how they are engaged by nonprofits.  Participants will learn strategic entry points to successfully engage these younger generations. Ultimately, today’s annual donors and volunteers are tomorrow’s major donors; cultivate them today.

Emily Davis is the President of Emily Davis Consulting, author of Fundraising and the Next Generation; is a BoardSource Senior Governance Consultant; and 21/64 multi-generational family philanthropy certified adviser. She serves nonprofits and philanthropists through planning, facilitation, and publications on board governance, philanthropy, multi-generational issues, and nonprofit startup management.

Emily has served as a founder, grant maker, staff, and volunteer across a wide variety of organizations locally and nationally. She has her Masters in Nonprofit Management from Regis University and is certified in Essential Facilitation™ and ToP Facilitation™.

Qgiv Roadmap & Customer Showcase

Presented by: Jennifer Mansfield, Vice President of Customer Experience at Qgiv

Knowing the best uses of Qgiv’s available (and upcoming!) tools helps you raise more money. Jennifer will show you how to find greater success using some of your favorite and recently-released fundraising tools like our FundHub Live feature, which is part of the Mobile Suite.

She’ll also showcase successful strategies from actual Qgiv clients! Observing best practices and unique ideas for donation pages, events, and more will inspire you to make the most of your Qgiv tools.

How to Build a Better Appeal

Presented by: Afton Lorenz, Customer Success Manager at Qgiv

Your donors don’t read your appeal letters. At least not right away! In this session, you’ll learn what donors look for before they read your appeal letter and how to draw them in using the items they scan for.

You’ll also learn tips on how to use storytelling, unique points of view, and familiar language to keep your donors engaged with your content.

Bring an appeal letter from your organization that you’d like to improve. We’ll take a few moments to apply best practices from the presentation so you can walk away with notes on how to turn your appeal letter into a donation magnet!
