This session will focus on how to better work with multiple generations within your organization to raise dollars from donors and funders of all kinds. Join Emily Davis, next generation philanthropy’s thought leader and author of Fundraising and the Next Generation to:

• Learn about similarities and differences in multi-generational fundraising communications.
• Gain specific strategies to fundraise from and with the next generation of donors.
