This session, presented as a conversation with Nevin E. Kessler, President of the Rutgers University Foundation, and Helen Archontou, Chief Executive Officer for the YWCA Northern New Jersey, will be led by Jay Angeletti, AFP member and one of our profession’s most accomplished leaders. Together, Jay, Helen and Nevin will lead a discussion about the fast-shifting philanthropic landscape that informs and impacts the work of fundraisers in New Jersey and beyond.

What are the implications of the newest generation of donors on your direct response program, event schedules, and volunteer engagement? How do different generations communicate and how do they want to be stewarded? How do we respond to the trend of corporations and many of our best donors leaving New Jersey?  Is social impact investing real? And do we have enough information about the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to make informed decisions about how we attract and retain donors who can no longer deduct their charitable gifts?

Come prepared for a wide-ranging and insightful conversation regarding the future of our important work.  And come with questions and thoughts to add to the conversation. Whatever you do, don’t miss this opportunity.  

By attending, you’ll leave with an understanding of . . .

  • The major shifts and trends shaping the philanthropic landscape–in ways that impact every non-profit
  • Priorities for planning, building your own program and how to segment and increase philanthropic revenue during this challenging and exciting time
  • How the leaders in our profession are taking steps to address this complex environment.
