#xydonors: Cracking the Code of Communicating with Younger Donors

Communicating and reaching younger donors can feel like solving a mystery, but connecting with the next generations of donors is not as puzzling as you might think. Find out how to reach out to these audiences from a Gen Xer and a Millennial who will share how to effectively communicate with younger donors and prospects. Learn to create meaningful messages for younger audiences without recreating the wheel.
