Don’t miss the return of this highly anticipated report! The Next Generation of American Giving reveals multichannel preferences and charitable habits of Generation X, Generation Y, Baby Boomers, and Matures. These preferences can have a big impact on your fundraising strategy!
Since 2009, the Millennial Impact Report has uncovered comprehensive data that reveals this rising generation is eager to connect, get involved, and give to causes they’re passionate about.

In this month-long series, we explore the values, motivations, and stories of the up-and-coming generation of philanthropists. This series complements research conducted by 21/64 and the Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University released earlier this year and our related GrantCraft analysis. In this episode, we learn what characteristics, values, and mentality shape next generation donors, and how research was conducted to learn about this group's giving tendencies.
This is the release of the first episode in a four week series called Shaping the Future of Philanthropy: Voices from Next Gen Donors. The series was created as part of a collaboration between GrantCraft, 21/64, and the Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University based on research released earlier this year and our related GrantCraft analysis. In this episode, we learn what characteristics, values, and mentalities shape next generation donors, and how research was conducted to learn about this group’s giving tendencies. As an active member of the philanthropy community who identifies as part of the subject demographic, I thought I’d share some of my own observations about who we are.
