Today we turn the #CharityTuesday proverbial table.
Instead of focusing on an audience of donors and the worthy causes to which they can give, we will instead focus on an audience of nonprofit professionals, and the dynamic resources that are available to them.
Specifically, the post I was reading was entitled “Millennials Changing Philanthropy” and it focused on the philanthropic characteristics of those born in the years of 1980-2000. In particular, one shocking characteristic of these Millennials is that they are said to be transferred $30 trillion of wealth in the next 30 years.
(I had to write out the word “trillion” because, to be honest, I wasn’t sure how to represent that number numerically. Too. Many. Zeros.)
The best part about the re: charity blog, however, is not just a “fun fact” producing publication. No, rather the opposite. For example, the blog post I read offered insights into what to expect from Millennials in regards to giving trends, motivation for giving, and expectations for direct involvement in impacting change.
Truly, this blog and its writer are worthy of your time as a professional working in the charitable space. You will continue to be challenged, moved, and encouraged within your work after having read his posts. Consider starting with some of the following posts that we’ve personally enjoyed and were inspired by:
- Retargeting for Charity
- Virality, Retention, Scaling, and Ignite Giving
- Tips for Nonprofit Crowdfunding Success
- Charity Scandals
- Huffington Post articles, including “Why I Hate #GivingTuesday”
Best part about Brady and his posts – it’s free. If there is indeed a way for you to “give back” to the re: charity blog, it would be to follow, subscribe to, share, tweet, comment on, and like his posts so that your network, too, can benefit from keen and thoughtful insight into the charitable sector.
