Developing a lifelong philanthropic relationship with alumni begins in the first few years after graduation. Bombarding young alumni right away with direct and overly aggressive gift solicitations can be off-putting and may jeopardize the relationship. Finding the right engaging and even entertaining approaches to conveying the importance and impact of philanthropy at your institution can set the stage for loyal support for years to come.

Register now for your entire team to learn how to effectively engage and solicit recent graduates in a way that will lead to a lifetime of philanthropic support.


  • Tips for understanding the attitudes, interests, and unique position in life of young alumni
  • Guidelines for developing a compelling case for their involvement and support
  • Methods for coordinating direct appeals, social content, and other communications
  • Tactics for engaging them through events, activities, and volunteer opportunities
  • Examples from other institutions, and more!
