Continue the celebration after the awards luncheon by joining us for a panel discussion on Philanthropy and how it can impact our community. Our panel of experts includes successful business leaders and community “game changers” – what motivates them to work to make a difference?
What: A panel discussion that is part of Southeastern Wisconsin’s celebration of National Philanthropy Day.
Topic: A recent news article stated that the Future of US Philanthropists is in the Hands of Gen X and Millennials. Our panel will explore this statement and how successful business owners and philanthropists approach their goals of making our community stronger. What motivates giving, community activity and how can we partner for the greater good.
The silent generation is dying, Baby Boomers are retiring. Our goal is to find out from the city's next generation of successful business owners and philanthropists what motivates them to give so area non-profits can better engage them both monetarily and through volunteerism.
The panel discussion will be facilitated by Milwaukee Business Journal publisher Kira LaFond and Association of Fundraising Professions – Southeast Wisconsin chapter president Nancy Seidl Nelson.
Please check back, our panelists will be annouced soon!
The day will conclude with a 3:30 networking social where community members representing the business and nonprofit sectors can make connections that will advance southeastern Wisconsin into the future.
