HACU Webinar: Trends in Philanthropy: Fundraising in Higher Education

Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CDT | Register here.

HACU members are invited to participate in a free webinar focused on Trends in Philanthropy. Understanding the evolving trends of the philanthropic sector can give institutions a firmer grasp on the opportunities they might take advantage of to increase their philanthropic revenue. Giving USA Foundation disseminates a philanthropy report each year that details trends in philanthropy, offers analyses and economic outlooks, and makes suggestions about effective strategies. These trends break down philanthropic giving by cause area, gift type, and donation source (e.g. foundations; individuals; corporate; etc.). In this workshop, you will review the latest report and break down key data.
