Youth In Philanthropy: Cultivating the Next Generation of Supporters
April 29, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Dr. Marcela Molina from Tucson Girls Chorus is joining us to explore creative ways in which youth members or volunteers in your organization can enhance donor cultivation and retention through their participation in the fundraising process. She will discuss how we can ensure young people have a strong sense of belonging and self, and how to give young people the agency and confidence to be ambassadors for your organization.
Dr. Marcela Molina has been affiliated with the Tucson Girls Chorus since 2006, first serving as Artistic Director and taking the helm as Executive Director in 2011. Under Dr. Molina’s guidance, the Tucson Girls Chorus (TGC) has grown significantly in program and community engagement. With her leadership, the TGC has transformed into a collaborative organization that creates access to inclusive programming for youth and provides resources to music educators and support to their classrooms all year-round.
