A Practical Look at Assessing Your Gift Planning Program

November 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm

Presentation Summary

Nonprofits requesting gifts of appreciated assets grow consistently and rapidly. With the Baby Boomer generation actively passing along their wealth, organizations have an estimated 10 years to institutionalize gift planning culture to maximize the peak of the wealth transfer.

This session explores how nonprofits can strategically evaluate, grow, and shift fundraising efforts from a typical cash-only model to one which actively pursues non-cash assets. The session will provide practical advice and guidance for organizations of all sizes and for professionals with varying levels of gift planning expertise.
