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

New York's Leading Role in the History of Gift Planning

by Ron Brown

As America’s financial center, New York was the first city to bring together bankers, attorneys, insurance companies, and nonprofit gift planners. See how the gift planning profession began in New York, flourished, and continues to shape American philanthropy. For example:

  • In his Washington Square apartment in 1830, John Trumbull offered to give his best paintings of the men, women, and events of the American Revolution to Yale in exchange for an annuity of $1,000 
  • The American Bible Society issued 4,615 gift annuities between 1920-1930 from their headquarters in Astor Place
  • New York State was the first to recognize the legality of gift annuities 
  • Eight of the first ten Conferences on Gift Annuities were held in New York City

This session is eligible for CPE and CFRE credit.
