Do you want to secure the future of your institution through remarkable gifts?
Bequests are the most cost effective form of fundraising and can yield amazing transformational gifts, but many of us defer planning for, resourcing and implementing programs for this area of fundraising—or just prepare a brochure and hope for the best…
This extended hands-on workshop for fundraising staff and volunteers from schools, colleges, universities and other institutions will look at giving data, bequest societies, prospects, cultivation and engagement, asking and stewardship, to provide a road map for delegates so they are equipped to develop and implement a bequest program. A practitioners’ panel will provide their insight into effective bequest fundraising techniques.
