Millennials: It’s All About Meaning

Amanda Brock, SparkSF

Millennials are unlike any other generation to date. They are eager to connect, make impact and create meaning. They are also the future of philanthropy and the workforce. They ask "why?" and want truthful answers. They give lots of time and the aggregate impact of their donations is exponential. In this panel, we will discuss how to create meaningful experiences for Millennials as it relates to social impact. You learn how to engage the next generation, making them champions for your work and become a pipeline of donors for your organization.
