Session Description: 
Why do donors make a planned gift? Are they comfortable thinking about their own mortality? Is the planned giving process complicated and intimidating? The Giving USA Foundation’s survey of planned gift donors provides a window into our donors’ thinking. While the insights may surprise you, the conclusion will not, "We believe all fundraisers need to be equipped with a basic knowledge and understanding of planned gift vehicles to ask and encourage donors to make planned gifts."This session with provide a brief overview of the study's findings and an opportunity for in-depth discussion of the practical implications for your planned giving program.
