The aging of Baby Boomers, the historic intergenerational transfer of wealth, tax reform proposals, and the trend toward more values-focused estate planning all combine to make this period the Golden Age of Planned Giving. Is your organization poised to benefit from this powerful wave of Planned Giving? Or are you operating under the mistaken notion that Planned Giving is only for large and well-funded operations?
In this session, special guest Lorraine del Prado will discuss the powerful roles of Planned Giving and the ten easy steps for smaller organizations to take part in this critically important donor relations activity. Lorraine will also share a Planned Giving Toolkit with extensive resources and templates that will leave you having no more excuses for not implementing a Planned Giving program.
Lorraine will also be presenting "Do Well by Doing Good": The Multifarious Benefits of Altruism" at 7:00pm at Pybus University for community members who want to learn about the benefits of philanthropy and ways to leave meaningful legacies. Learn more and sign up here, and feel free to share!
