Event: Philanthropic Motivations of LGBT Donors and Same-Sex Couples
April 16, 2019: 1:45 - 3:00pm Eastern in Indianapolis, IN at the CASE Conference on Diverse Philanthropy and Leadership
While academic research on philanthropy has grown, little research has focused on the motivations and practices of LGBT donors. Join us to learn about new research on LGBT donors, their philanthropy, and their donor experiences. We’ll also explore how same-sex couples think about charitable giving and make philanthropic decisions. You’ll leave this in-depth discussion with a better understanding of the motivations, priorities, and concerns of LGBT donors and with a series of concrete strategies to inspire increased and inclusive giving to your institution.
