Navigating Relationships and Giving with Aging Donors

About the Event

In Dane County, the 85 and older population is expected to more than double by 2040, and adults ages 65+ will make up 20% of the county’s population. Additionally, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services projects that the number of people with dementia in Wisconsin will double by 2040 because age is the greatest risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease. Join us to learn and discuss the ethical and legal issues to keep in mind when stewarding aging donors, and how to navigate relationships with donors who develop cognitive impairments.
