You’ve put it off. It nags at you. You know you should be talking to your longtime donors and volunteers about making a legacy gift.
But… whatever your excuse is — and there are many — you are leaving money on the table that could further your mission if you don’t ASK your dearest friends to consider a planned gift. Most of them are easy. Most of the technical stuff is handled by other professionals. And those gifts are there for the asking. But you DO have to ask — just like any other gift.
Attend this webinar to learn how you can get started with planned giving.
- The pro’s and con’s of starting a planned giving program
- The opportunities for planned giving. Apply national statistics to your database
- How to get your organization ready for planned giving
- Planned gifts you should consider promoting — and some you probably shouldn’t at the beginning
- Whom to ask and how
- Recognizing planned giving commitments
This presentation will be recorded for future viewing.
