Engaging the Givers

In his new book, The Givers – Wealth, Power and Philanthropy in a new Gilded Age, author David Callahan shares incredible insights on how the philanthropists of today want to “give while they live” (think Bill and Melinda Gates or Mark Zuckerberg or Priscilla Chan). Combine this trend with an estimated $30 trillion that will change hands in the largest transfer of wealth in human history that is now underway in the US and also the fact that 71% of the giving done in our country is by individuals, nonprofits have to be better than ever at engaging their major donors.

Randy Redner will give his insights on cultivating donor relationships

Britt Ramroop will moderate a discussion with major gift donors on the do’s and don’ts of relationship gift building
