Event: Engaging an Increasingly Diverse and International Donor Base

July 16, 2017, 4:30-5:45 pm PT in San Francisco at the Summit for Leaders in Advancement

The number of international students in the United States has grown nearly 80 percent since 2000, and along with that growth comes the potential to develop global donor relationships. The challenge lies in understanding the nuanced cultural differences and best practices of international philanthropy.

Recent Campbell and Company research lends insight into the key challenges of international fundraising, how cultural differences affect giving motivations, and the critical skills and competencies required for development officers tasked with building and nurturing relationships with parents and alumni living outside the United States.
