Since the beginning of 2023, the ACLU has counted over 474 anti-LGBTQ bills in the United States fueling frustration, mental health challenges, and action for LGBTQ+ donors and allies. How are you adjusting your engagement strategies – and how is this community engaging with you? In this session we’ll explore how to create a truly inclusive culture of generosity that not only encourages but celebrates giving from everyone while recognizing and honoring the identities each of us bring forward in exercising our philanthropy. Creating an inclusive giving program isn’t just about calling it ‘inclusive’ but involves strategies that truly recognize and honor donors’ experience and lives. Together, we’ll explore ways to honor your LGBTQIA+ donors in meaningful ways.
