    How Generation Z will Impact Your  Fundraising

    Monnie Wertz – The University of Tampa

    Over the last thirty years, researchers William Strauss and Neil Howe have postulated on the different generations within American society and how those generational differences occur.  Through their work, they have provided language and characteristics through which to understand and contrast different segments of the population as they relate to school, work, and personal lives.  Going forward, new voices are emerging to continue their work, particularly as it relates to the next generation, Generation Z.  As this generation begins to enter all aspects of our society, fund-raising professionals need to be prepared to understand how they could and should affect their practice.  Participants will be provided an overview of current research and specific applications to community service/fund-raising behaviors.  Suggestions will be made for review of current processes and possible new strategies to pursue.

    Fundraisers spend a lot of time acquiring new donors, and with good cause. However, in order to create a long-lasting relationship, the most critical gift isn’t the first; it’s the second.

    In this session, nonprofit technology veteran Jay Love will make the case for why donors should concentrate on acquiring a donor’s second gift in order to achieve sustainable funding, high donor retention rates and high donor lifetime values.

    You’ll see examples that can be implemented by any organization, whether you are a one-person shop or a large development department. The results can be astounding when put into daily use!

    Learning Outcomes:

    • Explore current research on donor loyalty and retention
    • Understand the importance of donor lifetime value
    • Learn new donor communications techniques that get the second gift
