Planned Giving: Accepting and Attracting Donations

Tuesday, August 22, 2017 10:30 am - 12:00 pm  ET
In-person | Atlanta, GA

In search of funds? What nonprofit isn’t?

In addition to traditional fundraising efforts - grant writing, sponsorships, events, and campaigns - there’s also planned giving. Nonprofits can benefit from understanding and attracting planned giving. Expand your funding by being ready to accept stock when offered and being prepared to discuss planned giving options.

Our speakers help nonprofits understand:

  • What is planned giving?
  • How can you facilitate planned giving?
  • What is an endowment and what are the special rules governing endowments?
  • What are unrestricted gifts?

Presented by: Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta
