Jumpstart Your Planned Giving Program

January 24, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

$169 for Members / $199 for Nonmembers

Instructor: Jennifer Humphreys

If you aren’t talking to your donors and prospects about making a lasting legacy gift to your non-profit, then you are leaving money on the table. Every day, your supporters are making decisions to leave organizations in their wills or estate plans. It is estimated that, if a person is making a will and charitably inclined, they might leave anywhere from 3-5 charities in their will. You should be one of them.

Sometimes it is challenging to overcome the hurdle of talking about making a planned gift. The other hurdle is how to fold planned giving work into your normal, very busy and pressing, fund raising efforts.

Join Jennifer Humphreys as she guides you through the basics of building a planned giving program and having those conversations with your donors/prospects. At the workshop you will:

  • Gain knowledge on the ins and outs of planned giving: terminology, concepts about endowment campaigns, and the basics of starting your program.
  • Find out how to get your team and volunteers involved.
  • Learn about planned gifts and how to talk about them SIMPLY AND EASILY.
  • Practice having the “conversations” and find out how easy it can be.
  • Leave with a set of real goals and objectives to get you started – TODAY.
