    Laurie,
    You are so right. Thanks for sharing Jeff's comments and your response.

    I thought (successful) fundraising was all about the donor needs. No matter how old, young, sexual orientation blah blah blah. As far as I know an aging donor eventually dies - with a great relationship a planned gift may have been arranged. Otherwise, that ends the donors ability to give - No?

    So where are we going to find the next generation of donors. And I thought youth in philanthropy was all about teaching and empowering them to give early and make it a behavior they enjoy and becomes a habit.

    Seems to me folks like Alex of Alex's Lemonade Stand and @StovesforRwanda and @KidsareHeroes via Twitter (just to name 3) are doing just that. For us old folks to ignore or place OUR expectations on their giving is wrong on all sorts of levels.

    Thanks so much for your comments, Barb. I couldn't agree more!
