About the Event:

The Planned Giving Toolbox is a detailed training discussion illustrated with case studies that will provide a simple introduction or refresher of traditional and non-traditional planned giving tools and strategies to address the needs and concerns of your donors. This presentation will break down planned giving vehicles, often viewed as “too complex,” to provide you the confidence and ability to generate more immediate gift and planned giving opportunities with your donors. We will discuss how various charitable planning strategies can provide donors with lifetime retirement income while creating larger inheritances to heirs and legacies to the non-profits they care about. This presentation will include Tax Advantaged Gifts, the IRS IRA Gift Matching Program, Donor Advised Funds, Uncommon Charitable Uses of Commercial Annuities, Charitable Remainder Trusts, Enhanced Charitable Trusts, Tax-Free Wealth Replacement Plans and much more. The Planned Giving Toolbox will also equip you with suggestions for increasing planned giving opportunities.

In this session:

  • Advantages of addressing donor concerns and needs with planned giving strategies
  • Details of specific traditional and non-traditional planned giving tools and strategies through case studies
  • Suggestions for communicating planned giving opportunities to donors

Target Audience:

From beginner to experienced, the Planned Giving Toolbox will provide development professionals a simple introduction or a detailed refresher to donor-centric traditional and non-traditional planned giving tools and strategies.
