Introducing the ‘Gerontrophilanthroplutocracy”

Robert F. Sharpe, Jr., Chairman of The Sharpe Group and well-known philanthropy speaker and author, will present a featured session at the NCDC Annual Conference this fall.

IRS data underscores the fact that older donors make a disproportionate percentage of charitable gifts and give significantly more than younger donors.  America’s nonprofit community will be increasingly reliant on the senior population as Baby Boomers are entering this phase of life. Mr. Sharpe’s presentation will explore the expected impact of the rapidly growing population of aging Baby Boomers and how they can be expected to dominate the philanthropic landscape over the coming decade in both expected and unexpected ways: the “gerontrophilanthroplutocracy.”
