“Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area.
You know Lansie Sylvia for her fabulous Generocity column, “How to Give,” about all things millennial philanthropy.
But how did she become a millennial philanthropy expert in the first place?
Before starting a career as a strategist, Sylvia worked at nonprofits and earned her master’s degree in nonprofit leadership at Penn. That experience changed her view of nonprofit fundraising: Rather than organizations getting most of their money from grants, she learned, “the truth is that the majority of nonprofits get money through individuals — individuals like us.”
Millennials, the largest generation, are also the most charitable generation and more likely to support companies or products with a social mission attached, Sylvai shared during her “Around the Corner” interview.
She also dropped some tips for figuring out which nonprofits are legit and for finding your passion vs. “finding your rage.” Watch it below.
PhillyCAM is Comcast channel 66/966 HD/967 and Verizon FIOS channel 29/30 in Philadelphia.
