Weaving Planned Giving into Your Donor Conversations

We've been there before.  We have courted and know - or should know - our annual and major gift donors really well.  However, we may come to realize that we've never approached the subject of an estate or planned gift and are not sure how to do so now without feeling awkward.  In this presentation, the listener learns the techniques that afford an easy transition to what will often be the largest and most impactful gift a donor will ever make.  As the massive transfer of wealth begins in earnest over the next two+ decades, organizations that leave gift planning out of the conversation will be leaving money - and potentially the future security of the organization itself - on the line.
