Featuring Una Osili, Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy
The Community Foundation invites all nonprofit leaders and their boards to learn from Dr. Una Osili about the latest research and practical considerations nonprofits need to know about engaging and including donors from all backgrounds to achieve their missions.
As we consider trends in philanthropy in our communities, one thing is clear: the philanthropic landscape continues to be both complex and rapidly changing. Economic factors, social values, the impact of the changing demographics, and the rapid rise in the use of technology have all played a central role. What are the key factors shaping philanthropy now, and how do they impact nonprofits in our communities? What is the most effective way to engage donors of different backgrounds? How can nonprofits reach young donors now and in the future? Who is giving, and who is getting? This insightful and energized keynote address by Dr. Una Osili, Ph.D., IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, will address these questions and more.
