Program Description

Disruptive Gifts
Every Development Director and nonprofit Board Member has had the “what if…” dream of that one big gift that will transform your organization. For many, those dreams include an expansion of current programming or the ability to finally start that new program you’ve been planning. But, in a time when donor restrictions on gifts are increasing, those gifts can come with stipulations that have the potential to disrupt your organization’s business as usual. How does an organization and its Board evaluate accepting disruptive gifts? How can you position yourself to ensure that you can embrace the opportunities in those disruptions? Sarah Harrison, Vice President of Philanthropic Services at The Denver Foundation will talk about the new world of disruptive gifts.
