If you are giving $1 to over $1,000,000 and are under the age of 45, we need your help!
As you know, I am writing a book with Emily Davis, Fundraising Across Generations, that will be published by Wiley Publications in partnership with the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP). The book will focus on strategies and recommendations for development professionals to engage and raise money from the next generation of philanthropists (under age 45). While there is already a good start to the research that is available on the topic and more coming out every day, we are hoping to pull together some more information both through a survey and through one-on-one interviews that will provide concrete examples for development professionals. The hope is that the case studies and anecdotal information will bring the recommendations and strategies to life.
I am asking for your participation in this survey of next gen philanthropists: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/nextgenphilanthropy.
The survey is anonymous unless you include information at the end of the survey to have Emily or me follow up with you to share your story in person or during a phone conversation. There is a truncated time schedule for when the final manuscript is due, so please complete the survey no later than March 1, 2011 (http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/nextgenphilanthropy).
Be sure to watch for a new website, fundraisingacrossgenerations.org that will have examples from the publication and resources. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Emily through my blog.
Thank you in advance for all your help and support in getting this book off the ground; your help will make the final publication all that richer!
