Morning Seminar (10:00 AM - 12:00 PM)

PPGGNY University Seminar: Stepping into the Waters of Planned Giving

By Barbara R. Diehl, Esq.

Barbara’s presentation will cover the basics of how various planned gifts work, including gifts from bequests, simple trusts, IRAs, retirement plans, insurance policies, stocks, charitable gift annuities, and charitable remainder and charitable lead trusts. She will also discuss the primary features of each type gift which make it a positive “win-win” solution   for certain donor needs. The focus will not be to make you an expert on each of the gifts.  Instead, the session will focus on knowing the primary elements of each gift and becoming more sensitive to understand which gift possibilities are appropriate for various donor situations and how a creative and personalized approach to donors and specific gift possibilities will result in more and larger planned gifts for your organization..

This session has been approved for CLE, CPE, and CFRE credits.

Morning Seminar (10:00 AM - 12:00 PM)

Advanced Seminar:

Amiable Gift Agreements: Practical Guidance for Charities, Fundraisers and Donors on Drafting and Negotiating Balanced Charitable Gift Agreements for All Parties

by Anta Cissé-Green, JD, LL.M.

In recent years, various charitable contributions have been the subject of multiple headlines as a result of disputes between a charity and its donor.  These disputes are most often plagued by the ineffective gift agreement (or lack thereof) entered into by the parties.  The presentation with discuss the importance of crafting a proper gift agreement that outlines the donor’s intentions, clarifies the obligations of both parties, and ensures a continued donor-charity beneficial relationship.  The speaker will also focus on critical elements of negotiating a gift agreement that is donor friendly and will protect the charitable institution, particularly in connection with gifts involving naming rights. 

This session has been approved for CLE, CPE, and CFRE credits. 

Luncheon Presentation (12:30 PM - 2:00 PM)

Women, Philanthropy & Investments

by Pamela Yang, CPA, CFA

In examining motivations and priorities for giving, we should be aware of how factors such as age and gender can shape perceptions and behaviors over time. Two segments in particular – Millennials and Women – are becoming tangible proof points on why philanthropy and impact investing are so closely linked. The evolving needs of different generations are being shaped by the movement toward a holistic, goals-based approach to wealth management. In this session, we will look at what the numbers say about strategic philanthropy and how philanthropic planning and impact investing are driving the modernization of giving.  

This session has been approved for CPE and CFRE credits.
