How do Millennials relate to the organizations they support? What do they want as a donor and how does that translate into future support and donations? We’ve got the answers! Join experts from The Chronicle of Philanthropy and the Millennial Impact Project to hear the key takeaways from the recent Millennial Alumni Study. Although this study looked at the giving patterns of young adults and their alma mater, the key takeaways are surprising and extremely relevant to nonprofits large and small.

A little about the study:
The Millennial Alumni Study is a first-of-its-kind study on how Millennial Alumni (born 1980-2000) engage, work with and view donating to their alma mater. The findings of this study help fundraisers lay the groundwork for a post-graduation relationship.
