How to Influence the Next Generation of Giving

Excerpt from the AFP Blog: Recent News of Note

 

On April 24, four panelists gathered at #GivingUnderTheInfluence to discuss their views on employee engagement in a digital culture.

Sparked by America’s Charities’ recent report, SNAPSHOT: Trends and Strategies to Engage Employees in Greater Giving, this panel was pulled together to discuss what the research reveals—today’s world is facing the most dramatic shift in how employees are giving in the workplace. It’s time to fully engage employees and maximize the impact of the giving experience, inside and outside the walls of the workplace, in order to reach the next generation.

Among the #GivingUnderTheInfluence panelists were Marc Johnson, vice president of Digital Strategy at APCO Worldwide; Tom Watson, president of CauseWired; George Weiner, founder and CEO of WholeWhale; and Heather Lofkin Wright, national director of community service for PricewaterhouseCoopers.
