Kinetic’s Power of Philanthropy Summit to Feature New Research on High- and Ultra-Net-Worth Donors
Kinetic, a global fundraising consulting company headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, is partnering with the UMKC Henry W. Bloch School of Management to host its third virtual Power of Philanthropy Summit.
The Power of Philanthropy Summit will include new research by Jen Shang, Ph.D., the world’s first person to earn a doctoral degree in philanthropy and founder of the field of philanthropic psychology. Dr. Shang, co-founder and co-director of the Institute for Sustainable Philanthropy in Plymouth, England, has gained international recognition for her work. She recently released a short video hinting at some of her findings, which apply psychological theories of meaning and meaningfulness to philanthropy for the first time.
“We are thrilled to connect the nonprofit community with Jen Shang’s groundbreaking research,” shares Matt Beem, Kinetic’s chairman and CEO, and chair of the Institute’s advisory board. “Understanding the psychology behind high-impact giving and how donors experience philanthropy can help nonprofits build better relationships with donors. Better relationships lead to greater community impact.”
In addition to Dr. Shang’s research, a panel of high-impact philanthropists will share their insights and experiences.
The Power of Philanthropy Summit is free but registration is required.
