Are you involved with a nonprofit and wondering how to raise more money to secure the future of your organization? Have you heard the term “legacy giving” or sometimes called “planned giving” and were curious how to incorporate it into your existing program?  This 2-hour introductory class will explain what legacy gifts are, why they are essential to organizations (no matter the size or budget!), how you can locate prospects within your existing donor base and how to have the “legacy conversation.”  We will also cover some of the more common gift vehicles – don’t worry, you do not need to a background in law or finance to be able to discuss these with your donors! 

This class will explore real examples of legacy gifts, and use role-playing and interactive methods in order for you to gain important skills.  You will leave this class with the tools necessary to start to raise significant assets for your organization.
