THE START OF THE DAY: The Next Generation of Giving - Mastering the Big Picture

We’ll start the day with a look at the new Next Generation of Giving Study in Canada along side The Digital Outlook Report on how Gen Z, Gen Y, Gen X, Boomer, and Civics use technology for social impact. What channels work best for each generation and how do you combine them for success? Mike Johnston will kick it off with the top 10 things you can do to future proof your fundraising and share a one-of-a-kind generational giving case study from Amnesty International!


FIRST SESSION: Precision Fundraising How Chatbots, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning can help you prepare for the Next Generation of Giving

Once we’ve looked at the generational trends that will influence your future fundraising, we’ll investigate how machine learning and artificial intelligence will play a role in your success.

This hands-on session from one of the world’s foremost experts in AI and predictive fundraising will share his day-to-day experience at City of Hope in the United States.

Our International Presenter: Nathan Fay,AVP, Prospect Development, City of Hope, Los Angeles


SECOND SESSION: Omni-channel Fundraising: How the next generation of giving organizations need to use as many channels as possible and leverage technology to help make it happen!

An engaging muti-organizational journey that shows how introducing new channels, testing where channels are best partnered, investing in monthly giving; and leveraging measurable data and technology to bring them all together has helped give the Greater Vancouver Food Bank a better chance to increase revenue, acquire more donors, and speak to different generations more effectively.

Our local Presenter: Greg Douglas, Development Manager, Greater Vancouver Food Bank


THIRD SESSION: Design Thinking and Personas: How next generation of giving organizations need to leverage persona development and design thinking to guide their next generation of giving

To reach any generation of supporter demands that an organization be internally organized with cross functional teams working effectively between channels and departments. Design Thinking and personas are the ‘go to’ strategy for preparing for an omni channel and more complex giving environment. This session not only presents a local case study from Peace Arch Hospital Foundation but will give participants a chance to break into groups and do your mapping!

Our local Presenter: Jim Bindon, Director of Philanthropy, Peace Arch Hospital Foundation

When onsite, go down the hall directly behind information desk (north) from lobby of Jimmy Pattison Pavilion. Vancouver General is easy to find, however there are lots of buildings on the medical campus and so this particular map is helpful once they get to VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation.
