December 11, 2017 at 1:30pm
This event will be held in the same location as the regular monthly luncheon
Bequests are the single biggest source of realized planned gift dollars. For the most part, you don’t know who is going to do a bequest, when they are coming in, or how much they’ll be worth. Oh, and the donor can change their mind at any time! This presentation will summarize the latest research on bequest donor demographics and marketing. You’ll learn how to raise the topic of bequest giving as well as make the bequest decision urgent and easy. There will be time for questions during this interactive presentation.
