To be a strategic executive, donor, or fundraising professional, you need to know the trends. There is no better way to uncover philanthropic trends than to rely on Giving USA: The Annual Report on Philanthropy.
Join Dr. Patrick Rooney as he shares the 2021 Giving USA report and provides insights on what the data means. This signature program is the best opportunity to understand what’s changed and how that affects your philanthropic strategies, and Nonprofit Connect is proud to welcome Dr. Rooney back to Kansas City for the 17th year in a row. A true expert in this field, Dr. Rooney is Executive Associate Dean for Academic Programs and Professor of Economics and Philanthropic Studies at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy.
Philanthropic trends change rapidly in our complex world, and this is your chance to hear the latest. This year’s report will look at how giving continues to change in light of the pandemic.
We are thrilled to be back in-person for the first time since 2019. Join us at the National WW1 Museum and Memorial Auditorium, to gather as a community and learn from Dr. Rooney.
