"Black Belt Gift Planning: Ten Stages to Becoming a Master"

Join me in exploring various stages in a gift planner’s career.  We will discuss lessons learned, gift scenarios, training ideas and donor stories at each stage.  We will interact to discuss both the art and the science of gift planning.  We will also explore both hard and soft skills that epitomize the character of a master gift planner.

2017 Planned Giving Day Conference

"Seeking New Horizons"

Stepping Stone Image

Our Theme for the 2017 Planned Giving Day Conference is “Seeking New Horizons” as we remain ever vigilant of our philanthropic landscape and the uncertain effects of potential tax code revisions. The planned giving community remains undaunted; confident that donors will continue to provide support, and aware that planned giving retains its prominent role as donors consider the benefits of deferred giving strategies. Our conference is a destination for personal and professional growth and the authenticity necessary for our collaborative efforts with individual philanthropists, large and small, crafting charitable legacies for tomorrow.

Planned Giving Day provides an understanding of various planned giving options and the necessary information to structure and implement these charitable giving strategies. We encourage you and your colleagues to attend and keep current with changing demographics, challenges in the financial market place, shifting national priorities and politics, blended gifts, and new marketing tools to better understand their impact on philanthropic planning strategies.

The Planned Giving Day Conference offers masters, intermediate and fundamentals tracks for seasoned gift-planning professionals, attorneys and financial planners, as well as those just starting in planned giving. Attendees will expand their understanding of a broad range of topics during 60-minute workshops, making this conference the best and most cost-effective one-day seminar on planned giving you will find!

Conference registration covers access to all sessions, roundtable discussions, continental breakfast, lunch, and the popular “Networking Happy Hour.”  Watch for more information on the program soon.

Continuing Education Credits for CFRE, PACE, and CLE (Pennsylvania) are pending for this conference.
