More about the Planned Giving 101 program: 

This seminar is designed for all nonprofits in eastern North Carolina (including colleges – private, public, or community colleges) that would like to raise more money by beginning or running a planned giving program in a small development shop. You will learn the basics of the three simple planned gifts that make up 85%+ of all planned gifts. And, there will be a basic overview of charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and other gift vehicles.

You will benefit if you are in a small shop for charitable gift planning, a gift officer with partial responsibility for this area, or are interested in creating a program from the beginning. You will receive: three hours of seminar time, one hour lunch for networking, and 30-minute Q&A session.

Please join us to learn how important these gifts are to raising more money as a part of a comprehensive giving program.
