Nonprofit organizations that want to connect to younger people to raise awareness and encourage contributions should understand the broad-based motivations and attitudes of the millennial generation. While some of the pop culture assertions made in the media about the youngest generation in the workforce don't necessarily hold up to focused scrutiny, there are some basic behavioral patterns and preferences that do apply to many of the young adults and college students that make up this group. Tapping into these generational values can help charitable groups create more engaging outreach, as well as more effective fundraising campaigns. Here are three pieces of advice nonprofits should take into account when dealing with millennials:

NYCON members who use First Nonprofit’s programs enjoy enduring savings and improved efficiency. Our association knows that success, because from the beginning, we achieved the same great benefits. Great savings, seamless technology, and responsive service. NYCON highly recommends First Nonprofit’s remarkable unemployment solutions.
We were introduced to First Nonprofit through another housing authority. In our analysis and comparison to what we were paying the State, our first year savings was $5,800 plus. We have been with them since the end of 2008 and I am glad we have been. I consider them an arm of our HR department.
Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.
Throughout our membership in the Unemployment Savings Program, First Nonprofit understood our demands, community dynamics, and the importance of seamless services; that allowed us to serve our constituents better.
