A blended gift has been defined as a combination of current and deferred gift components; enabling a donor-centric approach to securing one of the largest gifts a donor is capable of giving. These types of gifts can assist donors in making transformational gifts through a variety of giving strategies. This session will discuss how to incorporate blended gifts in major and planned giving asks and understanding the opportunities when blended gift discussions are incorporated into all donor gift strategies.
