Millennials and Fundraising - Why Mobile Giving?

entrepreneur.jpgMillennials can perhaps best be described as enigmatic: we seek to have a real and tangible impact on the world, but we’re lazy; we wear fancy clothes and Apple watches, but we’re swimming in student loan debt and decrying rising health care premiums.

We demand to be spoken to in the right way by the right people and for the right reasons in order to feel inspired. We want to donate what little money we have to the right causes and to feel as though we’re making an impact, but that doesn’t mean we want to put effort into doing so, or even get out of bed. We want to talk to people and make real connections, but from the safety of being behind a screen.

NOV 29th is Right Around the Corner!

Nonprofit Quarterly noted last year that on these online collaborative giving days, you’ll see new donors who have never given to your organization before, and that’s often a result of social giving, where your existing supporters are acting as fundraisers and introducing their family and friends to your cause.
