The Strategic Philanthropy Seminar Series 2021–22: Leadership Series (Organizational Membership)
Leadership in strategic philanthropy: Shifting from planned giving to gift planning
This series will be an advanced look into how the gift planner (and their organization) can move from straightforward gifts to more complex conversations. We will focus on how to work with the donor to use their assets to support both their families and the causes that they care about.
This membership includes unique log-ins for three or more individuals at the same organization to attend three live seminars held over the 2021–22 season, plus our premium resource library that includes the recording of each seminar once they are completed, previous years’ seminars, and additional samples and templates.
