PPGGNY University Webinar: Planned Giving – Plain & Simple™

by Ellen Estes, JD

In this presentation Ellen Estes will discuss – in simple terms – the basic planned gift options: Bequests, Beneficiary Designations, gifts of marketable securities, Qualified Charitable Distributions, and Life Income Gifts, such as Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Remainder Trusts. She will also discuss how to talk with your donors about these gifts. At the end of the session you will feel much more comfortable and confident, knowing how these important gifts work, and how they can benefit both the donor and your organization. This session qualifies for CFRE and CPE credits
