About Our Session

The landscape for charitable giving is ever changing, with historically low interest rates, fluctuating investment markets and higher income tax rates. Now, more than ever, donors are looking for ways to maximize their philanthropic impact when giving to charity.

Attorney Jennifer Pagnillo of Day Pitney LLP will lead a discussion about ways to satisfy your donors’ objectives in making charitable gifts.

Who We Are

Since 1995, we have shown leading nonprofits across the United States and Canada how to remove their biggest planned giving obstacles and double the results of their planned giving efforts with limited time and money… and we GUARANTEE satisfaction. We can guarantee satisfaction because we regularly listen to nonprofits—and their donors—and take what we hear to continually perfect the planned giving bridge between nonprofits and their donors. The result is the most cost effective, time efficient planned giving presentation system on the market. Charities call it “donor motivation in a box.”

Through The Donor Motivation Program® and The Donor Motivation Professionals of North America, a network of trained professionals, we have shown North American charities how to “motivate planned giving” and double their results. Tens of thousands of donors have engaged in our Donor Presentation Experience and rated it either “one of the finest” or “absolutely the best” of its type.  Why?  It’s donor-centric!
