Planned Giving for the Small Shop
Don’t deprive your donors of a chance to leave their legacy through your work! Even small charities can manage an organized effort to ask their supporters for planned gifts. In this program, you’ll learn how to educate from the inside out, starting with your board members and staff and working into the wider community. You’ll also get a do-able plan for communicating, relationship-building and recognizing and thanking donors, all on a limited budget.
