Young Alumni Engagement and Giving Participation ft_ Glenn F_ Kosse


Billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg made his first donation of $5 to his alma mater, Johns Hopkins University, just at the age of 23. Since then, he has donated close to $1.8 billion to support research, teaching, and financial aid at the university.

While we all know and agree that today's young alumni are our future donors and advocates, it can be challenging to meaningfully engage them and build lasting relationships.

In this session, we talk to Dr. Glenn Kosse, whose dissertation was on the topic - “ The Relationship Between Young Alumni Participation and Giving to discuss some of the best practices to engage younger alumni.

To summarize, here's what you'll walk away with by watching the recording:

👉 Factors that impact young alumni giving

👉 Creative strategies to encourage young alumni participation

👉 Actionable steps to get started with young alumni engagement.
