This presentation will be recorded for future viewing.
When: Thursday, December 18th, 2014 – 1pm-2pm Eastern
Every nonprofit has Middle Class Millionaires actively involved in and supporting the organization. Do you know who they are? (Hint: you might be surprised at their characteristics and what they look like!) Do you understand their philanthropic goals and the values they share with your organization? Can you persuade them to make a major gift or bequest commitment?
Connecting with these key donors requires a new approach – one that is built on sharing a new vision with your board and key volunteers who work in the financial services industry (i.e. CPA’s lawyers, financial planners etc.) Learn how to effectively connect with your B and C-level donors (who may be unrecognized millionaires) and upgrade them to major gift status. Discover how to leverage your board and volunteers to help you find, motivate, and inspire these “under the radar” prospects.
The first portion of the presentation outlines the general characteristics of the Middle Class Millionaire and describes what concerns prevent them from considering the idea of making a major gift or leaving a bequest to a cherished charity.
The remainder of the presentation promotes the idea of leveraging those volunteers who work in the financial services industry into a dynamic (and free) resource that can help charities empower and motivate the Middle Class Millionaires into action. Using this approach, you create a sustainable gift planning culture within your organization.
Time will be given for a lively Q&A session.
