Too many organizations believe in-house planned giving expertise is needed to launch and sustain a planned giving program. This program will focus on the essential elements that are actually needed to add or elevate your planned giving presence. The program will discuss the planned giving case for support, role of leadership and your board in planned giving, building a prospect pool, simple but effective cultivation and marketing strategies and blended solicitations.
