Event Info






May 7th, 2019

12:00 - 12:30 p.m        Registration, Networking and Lunch

12:30 - 1:30 p.m          Presentation by Emma Lewzey, CFRE and Laura Satin Levin 

If you want to raise more big gifts at your small or mid-sized shop, you're missing out if you haven't tapped into the incredible potential of planned giving.

This first half of this session will focus on proven, practical tips and ideas from the front lines of fundraising that you can take back and implement at your organization.

The second half will delve deep into a fascinating story that proves transformational gifts are possible at any size shop – we'll be doing a detailed case study of a one-person development shop that recently landed a $7M bequest, thanks to incredible collaboration between the CEO, Board and staff team.
