Mining for Prospects: Using a Legacy Society to Increase Planned and Estate Gifts

Session by Stacy Sulman, JD

Estate and planned gifts are often the most sizeable gifts given by a donor and received by a charity. But finding prospects for such gifts involves creativity, persistence and a multi-stream approach. Using a Legacy Society as a case study, this presentation delves into the various aspects of a planned gift campaign, including: prospecting, messaging & marketing, cultivation, events, solicitation, gift closing, and stewardship. This session qualifies for CFRE Credits.

Morning Seminar (9:00 AM - 11:00 AM)

Bequest Administration: A Practical Discussion on Estate and Trust Administration for Charitable Beneficiaries

Session by Anta Cisse-Green, JD

As a beneficiary of a bequest under a trust or estate, charities have a fiduciary duty to ensure that the funds received by the charity are used in accordance with the purposes set forth by the donor in the pertinent governing agreement. Depending on the size of the charity, the management of charitable bequests is typically handled by the charity’s finance department or its development office. This presentation will outline some of the hurdles typically faced by charities when attempting to collect gifts for which the charity is named as a beneficiary of a trust, estate or IRA. Participants will be provided with practical instructions on how to efficiently administer bequests, including how to communicate with external stakeholders (donors, estate planning attorneys, executors and trustees), and collaborate with internal stakeholder in order to create a seamless internal bequest management system adaptable for any size charity. This session qualifies for CPE, CLE, and CFRE Credits.
