Diversifying Donor Bases: An Action Plan 


1:00PM - 2:30PM




Our institutions are serving increasingly diverse constituents, yet this diversity is infrequently represented in our donor bases. In an age of "mega gifts", our most invested donors are serving as co-visionaries in creating the future of nonprofit work. To truly serve diverse communities and position our organizations as promoters of social equity and justice, our philanthropic work must represent and elevate diverse voices. This session will explore how to identify donor diversification goals and measurements, and how to create a diverse pipeline of prospective donors. We will also explore how diversifying donor bases relies upon the diversification of other areas of our institutions.
