Communicating with Young Alumni About Giving

Recorded On: 11/06/2018


Developing a lifelong philanthropic relationship with alumni begins in the first few years after they graduate. Coming at them right away with aggressive and overly direct solicitations for money can be off-putting and may jeopardize that relationship. Finding softer, more engaging, and even more entertaining ways to explain and convey the importance and impact of philanthropy at your institution can set the stage for loyal support for years to come.
