The Planned Giving Bible is the ultimate planned giving desktop reference tool. It covers all of the relevant information you’ll ever need as a professional gift planner.
From simple gifts like bequests to more complicated gifts that pay income or protect assets, it covers them all, in detail. You’ll learn the ins and outs of charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, pooled income funds, donor advised funds, and more. It’s a true desktop reference for the fundraising professional.
But best of all, each gift plan is described in simple, plain English. No industry speak. No convoluted language that only an estate attorney can understand. And it’s not written in the kind of academic gibberish that would put an accountant to sleep.
It is not designed to make you a tax attorney. But it surely covers just enough to almost be in that league!
You’ll be able to reserve your copy soon. It would be a sin to miss out on this guide.
