As the United States philanthropic scene continues to evolve, nonprofit organizations must continue to navigate how to engage the next generation of donors, volunteers, and board members.

Millennials, born between 1980-1999, make up 75 million of the US population and have perplexed the nonprofit industry and its nearly 2 million nonprofits. Seasoned fundraiser and academic researcher Dr. Holly Hull Miori has developed and released a new book on millennial philanthropy and volunteerism: Millennial Philanthropy: Next Generation Fund Development for Professionals and Nonprofits with Palgrave Springer to help unlock the mystery of the next generation of philanthropy.  Millennials are more than avocado toast and lattes, they are a generation that engages in social justice, fundraising, volunteerism, and social media (of course!), and a few surprises.

“Millennial Philanthropy” is not just another examination of statistics and stereotypes. The book is a useful guide for nonprofits, board members, and curious minds on how to navigate the next generation of millennials and a bonus chapter on Generation Z. Miori’s turned her dissertation into a useful “how to” for the nonprofit community which provides a nuanced understanding of the forces that have shaped the millennial generation and the impact they are having on society at large. Through a combination of in-depth research, personal anecdotes, and expert analysis, Miori paints a comprehensive picture of how millennials will continue to be a force in philanthropy and volunteerism.

Miori states, “My goal is to provide a practical guide backed with up-to-date research and fun tidbits along the way. With twenty years of fundraising, and an elder millennial myself, I hope this book provides a guide on how to engage the next generation of philanthropists.”
