Gifts of Assets and Legacy Giving
Time & Location
About the Event
It’s easy to get stuck thinking about fundraising in terms of cash contributions that support an organization’s daily operations. While outright contributions of cash or stock are essential to supporting your organization’s programs, gifts of assets represent an alternate avenue for your donors to make gifts to your organization that are both larger and “lower cost” than they might have thought possible. Additionally, deferred legacy gifts offer a route to underwriting your organization’s efforts long into the future.
In this workshop, we will survey several of the less-common but “easy-to-give” types of assets that you can help your donors identify as a way for them to maximize their giving to your organization. Further, we will discuss the opportunities represented by legacy giving (such as bequests) and how to start legacy-giving discussions with your donors.
Topics to be discussed:
- Qualified Charitable Distributions
- Pay On Death and Transfer On Death Designations
- Gifts of Life Insurance
- Gifts of Appreciated Assets
This workshop is free to MNC members and $25 per person for non-members. We hope to see you there (via Zoom!)
