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!

Xitlali Cruz


I am currently pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science at Stanford. Since the beginning of my freshman year I have been involved with clubs such as Stanford’s Space Initiative (SSI) and the Society of Latinx Engineers (SOLE). In SSI I built a rocket and launched it.


Aero Methow Rescue Service


Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated, we must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service. The grant allowed our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.


Chelan Douglas Volunteer Attorney Services


The grant provided funds to hire a Housing Justice and Outreach Coordinator to visit rural and underserved areas. Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service. Rosie is building partnerships with local organizations through events such as the Columbia Valley Community Health’s Back to School Drive, as well as posting yard signs.

My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. He told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.
