Expanding the Pie – Planned Giving Strategies You Can Apply Today

Planned giving seems to be the unicorn of fundraising- mythical in its benefits and unattainable in its mysticism.  This program will demystify planned giving in four steps- an introduction to planned gifts, tips for talking about money, practical application of planned giving techniques, and effective administration- so that you can leave at the end of the day confident in your ability to reach out to your donors in support of your organization’s long-term needs.

In this four-hour program, you will:

  1. Learn the major types and characteristics of planned gifts;
  2. learn which planned giving tools your organization can implement today to start creating a reliable pipeline of current and deferred planned gifts;
  3. develop the skills to talk to donors about opportunities to give; and
  4. learn best practices to maximize planned gifts through effective administration.

Crilly, Executive Director of Gift Planning, University of California, Berkeley and Dylan Hendricks, Esq., Hendricks McFarlane, Attorneys at Law. Kevin has spent 23 years working in the field of gift planning, including more than 11 years as team lead at UC Berkeley.
