Join the  Lone Star Council of Charitable Gift Planners for an enlightening and entertaining session with Melissa S. Brown that will help focus your work with estate and gift planning, target donors, volunteers and staff members from different generations.

Our demographics are changing. Approximately 10,000 Baby Boomers are turning 65 every day between now and 2030. Millennials will be the largest proportion of any generation in the U.S. workforce by 2025. They also are the most ethnically diverse group. In between these two large groups are the GenXers who, in middle age, often get ignored. These demographic shifts are bringing significant changes to our society and to our culture, including to philanthropy and our nonprofit sector. Younger generations have different attitudes about giving, attitudes that nonprofits need to consider when developing fundraising strategies.

1. What do these shifts mean for how we recruit and manage board members and staff?
2. How do we reach these audiences in the most efficient and effective way?
Understand the issues and their implications.
3. Explore trends in philanthropy at the national and local levels.
4. Learn how to prepare for this generational shift impacting your work and how you can proactively address them.
5. After the keynote presentation, a facilitated discussion with local philanthropists, advisors and funders will highlight these trends right here in our own community.
6. Virtual breakout discussions of topics presented.
