The pro and the con of this class is that it is ever changing. Environmental, economic, political, generational, and ethical issues are creating a paradigm shift in philanthropy. One major issue today is technology, technology is allowing us to do more and to reach more, faster and faster; and the fundraising community hopes to take advantage of these benefits. This class explores the use and influence of technology on fundraising, considering the value of emerging practices and their potential with respect to the fund development process. The class also explores the myriad of ever changing trends, such as network structures, demographics, collaboration, and how they impact fundraising as well as ethical concerns in this evolving world.
