AFP SVC Chapter December Luncheon
Kay Sprinkel Grace: Planned Giving in a Time of Instant Gratification
Tuesday, December 12
Luncheon 11:30 – 1:30
Santa Clara Biltmore
We hear it all the time. Donors want results. Now. They want impact. Now. They want us to measure our effectiveness. Now. So how do we work with donors on planned gifts -- gifts whose impact they will never see? And if the gift will go into an endowment, how do we discuss with them the long term value of a 4.5% payout? Engaging donors for a testamentary bequest requires you to connect with their values, engage them in a discussion about the future, and communicate your mission throughout the duration of your relationship. Kay Sprinkel Grace will share strategies for working with today's impatient donors to help them envision a long term planned gift. She will describe models that work.
