Understanding the How Planned Gifts Work for Your Donors and Your Organization
Margaret M. Holman, President, Holman Consulting

Not sure you understand the difference between a CRAT and a CRUT?  Can you describe in plain language how a CGA works?  This session will help you feel more comfortable talking with your donors (and your organization) about the benefits of donors using the variety of planned gift vehicles to make personally significant gifts to your organization.  We’ll use real-life examples of donors who want to make a planned gift, but don’t know which one is the best for their situation.  And we’ll review what your organization needs to know about each of these gifts.  Q&A throughout the presentation.

This session qualifies for CPE and CFRE credits.

Session II Seminar: 2:00 pm – 3:10 pm

Supercharge Your Legacy Giving Program: Effective Multichannel Marketing Across the Consideration Continuum
Tracy Malloy-Curtis, JD, Director of Legacy Giving, Mal Warwick Donordigital

Building a successful and robust legacy gift pipeline requires not only investing in marketing but spending those dollars wisely. In this presentation, we will offer a case study of one client’s planned giving marketing program, as well as examples from other organizations of varying sizes. We will show that by updating their existing marketing to create an intentional, integrated marketing plan that reached donors across the gift consideration continuum, this organization was able to dramatically increase disclosure of legacy gift intentions and their pipeline of qualified leads in just two years. We will also discuss staff and resource expansion needs identified as a result of the growth of their program. We will explain how attendees can start to implement those strategies in their own programs, while building a case for additional investment in their planned giving marketing and staffing. We will spend at least 1/3 of our time on Q&A.

This session qualifies for CFRE credits.
