A Match Made in Heaven: Planned Gifts and Major Gifts Unite
Lise Twiford, CFRE
Vice President, Advancement at the American College
Adjunct Professor, Villanova University Continuing Studies
For years, planned giving and major gifts stood on separate sides of the playground. Then, their eyes met and it was love at first sight. Life has never been better for them! This half day seminar will demonstrate the value of bringing planned and major gifts together to create a dynamic gift scenario. Through conversation and role play, this session will awaken your creativity and send you home with new fundraising options to consider.
Tax Reform’s Impact
Stuart Sullivan, CFRE
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, passed by the Federal Government in 2017, could have a devastating impact on giving in the United States. Fundraisers must immediately prepare and implement new approaches to mitigate a possible decline in both the number of donors and dollars in 2019 and beyond.
Stuart will discuss:
- The culprit behind this potential decline.
- The decrease in itemizable deductions and its effect on giving.
- Whether the most generous donors are affected or not.
- How the middle class is affected.
- How to identify potential future givers.
- How the lack of incentive to give annually may hurt loyalty and, thus, planned giving.
- Mergers and acquisitions. Can these hurt philanthropy?
Stuart will present nine best practices and keys to success.
