In the FPN member webinar
Dr. James H. Johnson will follow-up his presentation at FPN's
2013 Statewide Summit on Philanthropy with an in-depth look at
Florida's current demographics and projections for the
future, with a specific emphasis on the aging population in Florida.
Florida is set to have the oldest population in America,
combined with a shifting demographic that is more diverse and
heavily immigrant. What does this mean for the tax base, the
employment base, the service economy, education and health care in
Florida? Where will the wave take us? How will this impact our
communities and our grantmaking? Where should philanthropy invest
now to prepare for the not too distant future?
Dr. Johnson will answer these critical
questions for funders during the webinar. He was the
highest-rated speaker at FPN's 2013 Summit. Whether or
not you heard him at the Summit, you won't want to miss
this important follow-up conversation.
