Gift Planning Fundamentals

Whether you are new to gift planning or you are in need of a solid refresher, Gift Planning Fundamentals is a one day introductory course that will give you the boost you need to thrive in your career.

This course can also be exclusively tailored to your organizations needs. Here’s what one clients said about their in-house Gift Planning Fundamentals:

Working with CAGP staff to develop a customized gift planning training session for all of our development team resulted in a half day workshop that exceeded the learning expectations of all participants. Our goal was to establish baseline gift planning knowledge and common terminology for all fundraising staff, and it was achieved in a fun and participatory manner. I highly recommend utilizing the expertise of the CAGP staff to enable the gift planning education and aspirations of fundraising staff at any non-profit organization.

This course provides an unrivaled educational experience, balancing formal classroom learning, in-depth discussions, group work, and case studies, while always incorporating adult-learning principles.
