Inclusive Philanthropy: Giving in the LGBT Community


Friday, December 9
11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. 


Multnomah Athletic Club
1849 SW Salmon Street | Portland, OR 

 While academic research on philanthropy has grown, little research has focused on the motivations and practices of LGBT donors.  Join us to learn about new academic research on LGBT donors, their philanthropy, and their donor experiences.  This session also will help you translate the research into concrete steps you can take to engage and cultivate LGBT donors in your organization.
Elizabeth Dale, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Nonprofit Leadership at Seattle University.  A former development director and CFRE, her research interests include gender differences in philanthropy, giving in the LGBT community, and grassroots and social justice organizations.
