Developed by two former Ivy Leaguers, University of Virginia Law Professor of Philanthropy, and a fundraiser who has raised millions.
Did you know that annual gifts and major gifts go up when you have a solid planned giving program in place? The Box is a great place to begin. Want grantors, grantees, sub-grantees and your board to take you more seriously? Just follow the step-by-step instructions in The Box. The instructions are so simply laid out that it carries no learning curve. It has all the content and verbiage you need from gift agreements, gift acceptance policies, evaluating your mission, approaching the best prospects, making the ask, and a lot more.
The Box is also helpful to consultants who want to focus on growing their practice instead of reinventing the wheel.
Purchase the entire Box or each module separately. More.

Planned Giving Websites
A planned giving website for your prospects and one for financial advisors lays the foundation for a successful marketing plan. It provides 24/7 access to your information to fulfill philanthropic aspirations.
Landing pages with digital outreach and interactive tools (calculators) get attention, build trust and convert casual browsers to active visitors.
All have marketing and legally vetted language that explain how gift plans work.
Fact: print marketing is far more powerful than e-marketing. So if you are planning on using e-marketing alone, don’t; balance it with print. Access a comprehensive series of gift planning tools and marketing materials a-la-carte or consider our Enterprise Solutions (a marketing bundle) with a 12- to 36- month comprehensive marketing plan.

How to Launch a Planned Giving Program
21 Simple steps to success.
In today’s economic environment, a legacy planned giving initiative helps you tap the hidden enormous potential of your loyal donors and transform the growth trajectory of your organization.
“I wonder how many churches and charitable organizations realize that community is one of the greatest gifts they have to offer … and these things are so valuable that people are willing to make their resources available to sustain them. Fundraising must always aim to create new, lasting relationships.”
It’s true — a kid with a kite! There’s a lesson that fundraisers can learn from the history of Niagara Falls — specifically, about a suspension bridge that, from 1855 to 1897, connected the United States to Canada over the roaring waters. This clearly shows how marketing is behind everything.
