Tuesday, May 3, 2016 / 9:30 am - 10:30 am
What happens when you mix next-generation energy and ingenuity with philanthropic capital? The answer is you get innovations that bring a business sense--and greater impact--to charitable giving. As more and more millennials think about their entry point into philanthropy, they want to do more than simply write a check. What are the key motivations driving young philanthropists and what challenges do they face as they move beyond the previous generation's idea of giving? Panelists will discuss their approach to philanthropic giving, their successes and failures, and how they measure their long-term impact.
