Moving Beyond 2%: How Will We Grow Charitable Giving in the U.S.?

When: Thursday, July 9, 2015, 7:00 PM

Where: LMHQ (150 Broadway, 20th Floor)

What: Charitable giving in the U.S. has hovered around 2% of GDP for nearly four decades. Minor increases in this rate could have a massive impact on the health of our nonprofit sector. In this meet-up, we'll hear from nonprofit leaders as they discuss strategies on how we might increase charitable giving; from corporate giving, major gifts, and moving casual donors into regular givers.

Why: Learn from leaders. Network with like-minds. Spread the word. Also, free drinks provided by Sixpoint Brewery!

Speakers will include Ami Dar (Founder of Idealist.org) and Tony Martignetti (Host of Nonprofit Radio).
