Request for Speakers
2019 Planned Giving Day Conference - October 30, 2019
"What Dreams We Weave"
The Planned Giving Council of Greater Philadelphia invites you to submit a request to speak and present at the 2019 Planned Giving Day Conference. This all-day conference scheduled for October 30th 2019 at the historic Union League, has become a “must attend” event in the philanthropic community. Last year, the conference drew over 200 participants. Our carefully selected group of over 20 highly qualified speakers provide a comprehensive day of instruction on the most basic to the most advanced strategies in planned giving, using simultaneous break-out sessions throughout the day.
The Planned Giving Day Conference is invaluable not only for planned giving and fundraising professionals but also for philanthropists, executive directors, family foundation managers, and financial and legal advisors for nonprofits and wealthy families.
Our Theme this year is “What Dreams We Weave” as we remain resilient and ever vigilant of the increasing array of social, economic and political challenges within our philanthropic landscape. 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 along with current 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 to submit presentations which address the current environment – such as the changing demographics, challenges in the financial market place, shifting national priorities and politics, blended gifts, and new marketing tools – and to illustrate their impact on philanthropic planning strategies.
Applications for speakers are due by April 22nd 2019. Conference presentations include topics related to planned and charitable giving, and speakers should feel free to propose topics that address not only the technical aspects of planned giving but also donor relationships as well as implementation issues or experiences. Conference speakers are asked to donate their time as well as travel expenses. Due to the large number of applications we receive, and the need to choose topics that are diverse and of widest appeal, we regret that not all speakers can be chosen (and if not, then please re-apply next year).
Please complete this form and submit it, either electronically OR via mail, to the Co-Chair of the Planned Giving Day Conference – Chair of the Faculty Committee, Delia G. Perez. All information must be typewritten; you may type directly on the electronic form. Electronic submissions are encouraged.Click here to download the Speaker RFP
