There has been an evolution of Planned Giving to Strategic Philanthropy. The shift has come slowly, but now more than ever, fundraisers need to understand that acting as trusted advisors with donors as they create their legacy gifts for the future of charitable organizations is expected by our supporters. As the next great intergenerational wealth transfer unfolds, a truly integrated ‘Third Program’ of fundraising is essential for every charity.
What this session will cover:
A shifting of philanthropic realities post-COVID
The need for expanded revenue opportunities to take advantage of funding opportunities
Understanding the basics of Planned Giving and creating an integrated program
The need to ‘lean in’ and move your program to Gift Planning
‘Being At The Table’ to take advantage of structured (blended) gift opportunities
How to position your organization for future success in the new realities of post-COVID fundraising
Establishing a truly integrated fundraising program requires three fully functioning areas of activity: Annual Giving, Major Giving and Planned Giving
How to establish and advance your Planned Giving Program
How to accelerate your Planned Giving program into a Gift Planning Program
How to take a seat at the table with your donors as they make important financial and estate planning decisions
