Have you ever wondered how your fundraising efforts relate to your constituents from different generations? Odds are your Gen Z and Baby Boomer donors are learning about and engaging with your nonprofit in very different ways. Your outreach should be optimized through a generational lens to ensure you’re reaching the right audience with the right message and inspiring generosity!

In Qgiv’s 2024 Generational Giving Report, over 1,000 donors of all ages were asked to tell us how they discover nonprofits to support, how they stay connected to those nonprofits, their fundraising event habits, donor retention preferences, and more!

Join this session for an early look at some of the report's findings, including tactics to ensure your fundraising is inclusive of all generations.

The Fundraising Effectiveness Project (FEP) — first established in 2006 — is

administered jointly by the Association of Fundraising Professionals and GivingTuesday. The database is the world’s largest public record of donation activity, with more than 241 million donation transactions, and is continuously updated by top fundraising software partners.

 

The FEP offers quarterly views of the current year’s fundraising data in aggregate, serving as a benchmark for nonprofit executives, development staff, and researchers to examine key fundraising and donor metrics.

 

The Quarterly reports are available to all AFP members and it identifies the number of new donors, renewed and recurring donors. It also reports donor retention based on the size of the gift, the organization and size. While donor retention rates are down, acquisition is up. We will discuss how to use this insight to improve stewardship and reverse the trend.
