Over the last decade, individual giving has been on a steady rise alongside a booming stock market. At the same time, the percentage of Americans giving has been dropping dramatically. Fewer donors are giving and those few are giving more money than ever before. Fundraisers have been at the center of the effort to discover and build relationships with those few and successfully propel revenues to historic highs. But have we also inadvertently contributed to the collapse of overall donor engagement? And what will happen when the market goes into bear territory? What will we do to ensure that we are moving our institutions into new philanthropic terrain? Jay Frost joins us to explore the most important questions in 21st Century philanthropy and our role in addressing them on the road ahead.About Jay Frost:
