Planned Giving and the 2020 Election

Elections have consequences. Much in the same way that the 2016 election produced a significant change in the US tax code, the 2020 election could do the same. This talk looks at the 2020 elections and their implications for planned giving and the non-profit sector.

Session Learning Objectives:

  1. Review how the 2016 impacted planned giving in the US.
  2. Discuss the context of the 2020 presidential, national and state elections.
  3. Identity issues in the 2020 election that may affect planned giving.
  4. Assess likely scenarios in terms of how the elections will address issues of concern to the planned giving community.

Minnesota State Demographic Center

The past two decades have meant big changes for Minnesota. The next two decades will bring even greater changes. Minnesota State Demographic Center’s Senior Demographer, Megan Dayton, will talk about how the people of Minnesota are changing and will describe what to expect in the future. She will also provide information on Minnesota’s aging trend and discuss impacts and implications in the areas of health, the state budget, the future labor force, and beyond.

Session Learning Objectives:

  1. Work force growth has slowed and will remain that way for the foreseeable future
  2. Domestic migration, international immigration, and automation are the only quick solutions to counter this slow down
  3. Longer-term solutions include raising the skills profile and educational attainment of workers
  4. Achievement and opportunity gaps by race could threaten economic growth as Minnesota’s work force grows increasingly diverse

Gift Planning for the Ages

It can be tough knowing which gift planning techniques appeal to donors of different age groups. We know segmentation is important, but how do we apply that to marketing and discussing gift planning ideas? Fear not, you'll leave this session knowing:

  • Most Common Gift Types for Silents, Boomers, X-ers, and Millenials
  • Simple Tips for Marketing and Conversations
  • Resources for Further Learning
