“It is likely that during an election year, causes and organizations that are politically aligned or part of a candidate’s agenda could see an increase in participation from this generation, and vice versa.”
INDIANAPOLIS (PRWEB) July 22, 2016
Registration is now open for a free, public webinar presenting initial findings from the 2016 Millennial Impact Report on Monday, July 25, at 12 p.m. ET.
There are few events in the United States that make social issues and affiliated causes - including those who support and those who oppose them - as public and popular as presidential election cycles.
The 2016 Millennial Impact Report Wave 1 Findings, released June 21 at MCON 2016, details how millennials’ cause engagement behaviors may change during an election year, and how these changes may be influenced by important demographics such as their political ideologies, geographical location, age, gender and race/ethnicity or by the emerging candidates for election. This study also examines millennials’ interest and activation in specific causes that may be differentiated by their support of a particular political party.
Research from previous studies within The Millennial Impact Project (themillennialimpact.com) repeatedly indicates millennials (born 1980-2000) value cause engagement. With the changing landscape in the U.S. brought on by a presidential election year, Achieve, the research agency behind The Millennial Impact Project, wanted to understand how – or if – this generation’s philanthropic interests and involvement changes as well.
“It is likely that during an election year, causes and organizations that are politically aligned or part of a candidate’s agenda could see an increase in participation from this generation, and vice versa,” said Derrick Feldmann, Achieve president. “As millennials are the largest generation in the U.S. and are now tied for the largest share of the vote, understanding the evolving millennial mindset in the current political landscape is critical to informing leaders and organizations that want to unleash this generation’s ability to create change for many years to come.”
