Questions we cover:

  • What is planned giving to your organization?
  • What planned gifts are accepted by your organization and what aren’t? Why?
  • How do you best educate your donors about benefits of planned gifts?
  • Are professional advisors a part of this conversation?
  • How do you track planned gifts in your system?
