Turning Legacy Giving Upside Down / MORNING WORKSHOP
“Unlocking Extraordinary Gifts from Ordinary Donors”

Many charity leaders feel overwhelmed in the area of planned giving because of their lack of knowledge in the field which is filled with competent professionals. This workshop is designed for you! Talk about partnership with Gift Planning Professionals and /or Financial Planners and how you shape your message for maximum impact. Gary MacDonald will give an overview of the most common mistakes in establishing and expanding a legacy program for long-term sustainability of your mission. The focus is for small and medium size charities who do not have a development department or staff. You will walk away with a plan to establish a full planned giving program by engaging key volunteers.

What is a major gift? Why do donors give large gifts? How do you identify a major gift prospect? Understand the 6 intentional steps to take to ask for a major gift.
