You’ve made it through Giving Tuesday and now is the time to debrief our successes and challenges and plan for the year ahead. The Florida Nonprofit Alliance partnered with Giving Tuesday and the Jessie Ball duPont Fund to research how Floridians give their time, talent, and treasure in an effort to help us think about how we can better engage volunteers, donors, and advocates. The resulting report, Growing Generosity in Florida: Giving Groups Under 45 dives into 3 distinct generosity profiles in Floridians between the ages of 18-45 and how to message to these different groups. 

Join us for a session to hear this latest research from FNA and walk away with tips for better fundraising. Participants will also have an opportunity to dive deeper in discussion with their peers around ways to build relationships with those donors that provide smaller donations when our organizations often have limited capacity.
