Planned Giving–SOLD OUT!

February 11, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Would you like to raise more money for your nonprofit…now?  For many of us, starting a planned giving program is something we will do “someday.”  Well, together, let’s make “someday” today!

This interactive course introduces the concept of planned giving, as well as an overview of strategies and technical requirements needed to create a successful planned giving program. Participants will learn to focus on bequests and bequest equivalents, the lion’s share and centerpiece of all planned gift programs.  Participants will be introduced to essential planned giving vehicles and learn how to identify potential planned gift audience and be given simple, low-cost marketing strategies.

Walk away from this workshop with a plan to kickstart your planned giving program so you can raise more money now!
