Often the optimum way to learn about planned giving is to engage in conversation with fellow professionals. We have to understand a donor’s desire to give, and also how to present options depending on the types of assets the donor wishes to give. Come have a roundtable conversation with your peers as we look at donor case studies, review donor stories, discuss options, and determine outcomes.

Kirby and Kevin have a combined number of 68 years’ experience working in the field of fundraising and planned giving and will present a variety of case studies—from the simple to the complex.
