To Read: A new study by the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy takes a look at the next generation of Jewish Donors:
The Jewish community has expressed concern that members of the next generation of Jewish donors are disinterested in their Jewishness, and that this disconnect may dramatically reduce their support for Jewish institutions. While Jewish next gen donors do give less to Jewish causes than they perceive that their parents or grandparents do, our findings suggest that the community’s concern is overblown. In fact, the survey reveals that giving to “Religious and Faith-based” organizations is the second highest area of giving for the Jewish next gen donors in this study, only surpassed by “Education.”
Number: 8.2, the percentage of next generation Jewish donors who refer to themselves as ‘conservative’ (one of the many interesting stats from the study mentioned above).
