Program Description:


Philanthropy and Dementia

Nonprofit institutions risk litigation, negative media, and loss of reputation or worse if they are not prepared with sound policies, procedures, and a trained professional staff when working with people who may have cognitiveimpairment due to the onset of dementia and its common form, Alzheimer’s disease. This two-part session will provide attendees with an overview of dementia and how to detect it, the “fundraiser’s dementia dilemma,” an update on research within the professional fundraising and financial planning ranks conducted by The University of Minnesota-Duluth, a review of case studies, and how one community foundation addressed issues identified in an audit. In breakout sessions, attendees will work together to review situational case studies and test practical recommendations on how to address the issues presented.
