Disruptive Demographics: Challenges and Opportunities for the Greater Washington Region's Philanthropic Community
The 2010 census data has made one thing clear: the demographics of our region are rapidly changing. But what does this really mean for the region, and what is the implication of these changes for philanthropy? This program will serve as a follow-up to the demographic overview of the Greater Washington region presented by Dr. Johnson at the 2011 annual meeting. By taking time to delve more deeply into 2010 census data and trends, participants will gain a richer understanding of the impact of demographic change on our region, and how the funding and nonprofit community can effectively respond to ensure that the needs of everyone in the region are addressed appropriately.
