Planned Giving: More Than A Gift

Helping donors reach their philanthropic potential requires that savvy gift officers understand the value and importance of planned giving opportunities. Planned giving techniques and tools can move transactional gifting to transformational gifts that bring dreams to reality for donors and the organizations they love.

This extended session will open the door of planned giving strategies to fundraising practitioners and broaden their tool belt of giving methodologies. Attendees will learn the language and tools of planned giving, how to identify potential planned giving donors, what motivates a planned gift, and practical applications they can employ immediately.

This session is geared to both new and experienced fundraising professionals.
