Expert offers workshops on fundraising and demographics
By Ann M. Gibb
America's shifting demographics will have a profound impact on philanthropy,
according to Judith Nichols, a fundraising practitioner and researcher
who will lead a series of workshops on "Building
the Individual Donor Base for UC Santa Cruz" on January 13.
|The workshops conducted by Judith
Nichols are open to all faculty and staff.
The sessions, sponsored by University Relations and open to all faculty
and staff, will be held at the University Center.
"It takes about 15 years for our perceptions to catch up with
reality," says Nichols, "Americans are just beginning to understand
that the majority of us are living well into our 80s and 90s, rather
than the 'three score and 10' we were told we would need to plan for."
Nichols specializes in helping organizations understand how changing
populations, generational differences, and other demographic factors,
especially those affecting the "baby boom" generation, influence
charitable giving. She offers practical solutions for responding to
emerging opportunities and working with donors in the new fundraising
"Building the individual donor base for UC Santa Cruz" is
expected to be of particular relevance to faculty and department chairs
interested in learning the latest trends in fundraising and working
in partnership with University Relations.
To assist in event planning, attendees are asked to RSVP via e-mail
or by calling (831) 459-2501.
