Planned Giving: Getting the Proper Start
Have you heard about "planned giving" and are unsure if it is something that your organization should pursue?
Are you hesitant to pursue planned giving because you do not know where to begin?
Did you know that planned gifts are as financially beneficial to your organization as they are to your donors?
The Johnson Center is offering this workshop on the basics of planned giving. Participants will learn how to determine if their organizations are ready for a planned giving program and better understand the financial benefits that donors realize through making planned gifts. Additionally, participants will gain a basic awareness of different types of planned gifts, such as appreciated property, wills and bequests, and other planned giving vehicles, as well as how to match your organization's needs with your donors' needs.
This workshop will be led by one of the Johnson Center's nonprofit technical assistance providers, Terry Horton. Horton has a J.D. from Lewis and Clark Law School in Portland, Ore. and was previously a consultant for The Foraker Group, a management support organization serving nonprofit organizations throughout the state of Alaska.
