There's the annual fund and special events ... you're expected to close major gifts and write grant proposals ... and you've got to find time to work with your board on capital campaign.

Is it any wonder planned giving is the very last thing you've got time do?

That's too bad!  A well integrated planned giving program will:

  • Allow your donors to be more generous

  • Introduce your organization to new potential donors

  • Deepen and preserve donor relationships
