The Millennial generation are everyday changemakers who use their tech savvy, entrepreneurial and independent-mindedness to change the way change is made.

The Case Foundation has been researching how the Millennial generation (born 1980 – 2000) gives to and engages with causes and social issues for ten years. It all began in 2008, with a five-year experiment designed to spark new forms of engagement between the social sector and this generation, called “Social Citizens.” Ten years later, we’ve witnessed the growth of a cohort of young adults capable of using their immense influence to reshape the ways that philanthropic, corporate and government institutions function on a scale that has never been experienced.

The Millennial
Impact Project

MCON 2017 held at the Newseum in Washington D.C. Joy Asico (www.asicophoto.com)

Since 2009, Achieve, in partnership with the Case Foundation, has studied the Millennial generation, their engagement with causes and their preferences for involvement and culture in the workplace. The reports have been downloaded more than 85,000 times and this research has been featured and referenced in hundreds of publications. The 2017 research focuses on how millennial involvement can determine the success or failure of social movements and causes; phase one was released in June. This work follows the 2016 Millennial Impact Report , which used a three phased-survey, over the course of the Presidential election year, to look specifically at how politics may influence Millennial engagement with social causes. The complete report was released in March 2017.
