How are Next Gen Donors revolutionizing philanthropy? Are Next Gen Donors really so different from previous generations? What influences Next Gen Donors?

The Continuity of Discontinuity - How Young Jews Are Connecting, Creating, and Organizing Their Own Jewish Lives
From Jonathan Sarna's A Great Awakening: "Continuity may depend on discontinuity. New historical conditions created new movements, new emphases and new paradigms – the very opposite of the tried and true. Today, we too must be willing to challenge some of our most basic assumptions. Even as we support, and must support, the so-called 'continuity agenda' it bears remembering that discontinuities – at least of the right sort – may have a greater impact still."
This study addresses the movement among many young Jews toward a de-institutional, culturally based Jewish identity examining community and meaning on their own terms and engaging young audiences in ways that can only make one optimistic about the Jewish future.

Latte Report – Jewish Identity and Community in a Time of Unlimited Choices
A research study produced by Reboot asking Jews aged 18-25 about their Jewish identity, involvement in Jewish life, and participation in civic life generally. The report finds that young peoples' feelings about their Jewish identity are generally positive but that once they leave home for college, young Jews live in a pluralistic American society where they have mixed friendship networks and other pressures competing for time and attention.
OMG! – How Generation Y is Redefining Faith in the iPod Era
A groundbreaking comparative research study produced by Reboot exploring the religious identities and practices of young Jews, Muslims, Catholics and Protestants aged 18-25. The results were released by the Brookings Institution on April 11, 2005, with a panel featuring E.J. Dionne, pollster Anna Greenberg, Bill Galston of CIRCLE, Roger Bennett of Reboot and Malia Lazu of Cities for Progress. Findings demonstrate that much of Generation Y embraces its religious identity but struggles with institutional forms of religion. The goal behind OMG is to catalyze discussions of changing forms of religious practice and experimentation in denominations across the country.
"You have created a fabulous training for the 21/64 tools – the combination of personal and group development, learning on individual and then facilitation levels, and working with specific tools and an overall system – what a hard balance that you did extremely well. So many thanks for including me in the program!"
