Nurturing the Gift of a Lifetime


Program Description:
Donors are making the ultimate gift to your organization when they create a planned gift. A donor spends time and resources meeting with lawyers, wealth managers, and family members to help create a lasting legacy. So why do we spend so little time stewarding these donors? During this session we will discuss strategies for enhancing planned giving stewardship and engaging these very important donors, even with limited resources.
