Socially Responsible Investing and Crypto: Two Critical Issues for Nonprofits

Today’s donors are increasingly interested in assuring that their charitable giving will support their chosen organization’s mission and have greater social impact.  Many are considering gifts of crypto currencies to share their huge appreciation in value.  Younger donors are asking whether and how Environmental, Social, Governance (”ESG”) principles are included in a charity’s stewardship.  Young tech-savvy and frequently very wealthy potential donors with large portfolios of cryptocurrencies may be the fastest growing demographic for charitable giving.  Relatively few charities are prepared to deal with them.

How should charities respond?  This webinar explores key issues with both topics.  It will discuss the basics and offer ways that charities can – and should – respond to their donors and increase their donors’ involvement.

Price: $44.50

That's 50% off its regular price of $89.
