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.
