This year’s Philanthropic Landscape event explored the changing face of fund development, addressing how nonprofits will have to adapt to these changes to be successful with tomorrow’s donors. 

Our keynote speaker, Una Osili, Ph.D., Director of Research, Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, provided an overview of trends in philanthropy, including new funding mechanisms, trends in high net worth philanthropy, how American families give today compared to yesteryear, and what all of this mean for fundraising.
