CCS is proud to partner with the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and Bank of America on this discussion around the recent Bank of America Study of Philanthropy: Charitable Giving by Affluent Households.

Amid pandemic challenges, nearly 90 percent of affluent households gave to charities in 2020, comparable to past years. At the same time, the study found notable shifts in the way donors give across different generations. This represents significant implications for philanthropists and the nonprofit sector going forward.

During this virtual panel discussion, we examine the study’s key findings on the giving patterns and priorities of High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs) and what this means for nonprofits. Learn practical insights on major gift fundraising, how to accelerate a relationship with a HNWI, and the keys to positioning an extraordinary gift.
