Luncheon Presentation

Navigating Today's Rapidly Changing Landscape of Fundraising

David Woodruff, Associate Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Resource Development, MIT


The landscape of our $400 billion fundraising world is rapidly shifting. How we as professionals adapt to the changes will determine how well our organizations succeed in the future. The evolution of generational patterns of engagement, the appearance of new giving vehicles, the emergence of new prospecting technologies, the restrictions on privacy of information, and the changes in tax laws are among the several drivers impacting our work. The presenter will offer his thoughts on the opportunities and challenges these trends present and what to do about them.
