Unleashing the Generosity of Affluent Americans
Sponsored by Bank of America Private Bank and Community Foundation of Sarasota County

Thursday, November 16, 2023
8:00 a.m. – Networking & Breakfast
8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. – Program
Location: Sarasota Yacht Club – 1100 John Ringling Blvd, Sarasota, FL 34236

Join us for insights into the motivations and strategies of wealthy donors. With the number of Americans giving to charity on the decline, many nonprofits increasingly rely on a smaller and more affluent circle of supporters to meet their fundraising goals. The Bank of America Study of Philanthropy, the ninth in our series of biennial reports on giving by wealthy households in the United States, illuminates many expressions of generosity by affluent Americans. The series offers practical insights into distinct donor demographics including rising generation, women, LGBTQ+ and ethnically-diverse donors. These insights – along with understanding of local community needs thanks to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County – can help build the confidence and increase the success of non­profit staff and board members when seeking transformational gifts from high capacity donors.

FREE Event for Members AND Non-Members. The Charitable Gift Planners of Southwest Florida looks forward to welcoming all members of the Southwest Florida Estate Planning Council as well as the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Southwest Florida Chapter to this special program.
