Programs & Events


Dr. Tad Dickel earned a Certificate in Nonprofit Board Consulting from the prestigious BoardSource in 2016. His presentation is entitled Defining Roles and Responsibilities of Board Members and Engaging Them in Development Efforts. This informative session will help participants learn how to better involve board members in the development process. Key to this is help our volunteers fully understand they now have important responsibilities.

Boomers are entering retirement and (we hope) making planned gifts. The following age cohort -- Gen X -- is the smallest generation currently living. People born from 1965 to 1981 (or so) are entering their peak earning years, yet their philanthropic giving has been historically lower than Boomers' giving (as a share of their income). Working with Boomers to “evergreen” their giving is becoming essential to charitable organizations' financial support. This session reviews the demographic trends, uses data about giving, and challenges participants to think about and plan for the future of philanthropy.
