Cause for Change: Engaging Millennials as Donors, Doers and Dedicated Employees

Whether you call them the next greatest generation or wonder how to recruit them for your cause, Millennials are making waves.  Enlisting Millennials as doers, donors and dedicated employees could well determine your organization's ability to thrive and our region's capacity to succeed.  Are you ready for this seismic change in the nonprofit sector?

On December 10, 2014, from 8:30 - 11AM, The Forbes Funds, The Benter Foundation and other partners invite you to learn more about Millennial preferences and what drives their cause engagement.  This invitation only conversation will explore how we can develop better ways to link Millennials to the causes and communities we serve. 

Derrick Feldmann, a cause marketing and fundraising expert, will share five years of research from the national Millennial Impact Project.  Local research findings and the views of Millennials who are and aren't currently involved in community efforts will anchor the conversation.  The group will suggest possible next steps to help local nonprofit and community groups test new ways to enlist Millennial talents.

Please remember this is an invite only event.
