Fundraising is a team sport. The team that creates successful cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of donors is often made up of individuals from different generations. Gen Yers/Millenials (born 1981-2000) are starting their employment paths and utilizing their tech savvy to communicate online and through smart phones. Gen Xers (1965-1980) are establishing their careers and looking for opportunities to lead while maintaining a "work to live" mentality that provides a flexible schedule and opportunities to work from home or remotely. Baby Boomers (1946-1964) are currently at the helm of most non-profit organizations providing leadership to and management of the younger generations with the mentally of "live to work" which means putting in long hours face-to-face in at the office. How does a development team of three generations work successfully together and with donors? This panel will cover the unique communication and work habits of each generation while finding common ground for successful teamwork.
Attendees will understand:
- The unique characteristics of each generation
- How to effectively communicate and work with fellow co-workers from different generations
- How to effectively cultivate, solicit and steward donors from all generations based on their unique generational characteristics
