Many individuals look ahead to their future with the intent of leaving an inheritance, and large numbers likewise are eager to support their favorite charities within their estate plans once friends and family are provided for.
Yet across charitable giving markets, the greatest barrier to not receiving legacy or planned gifts is a lack of strategy, communication, and solicitation. Benefiting from planned gifts requires careful planning and preparation, including a level of comfort to have legacy gift conversations with your donors. As we live through the greatest wealth transfer in history from the Baby Boomer generation, legacy gifts to charitable organisations are more important now than ever — and we are here to make sure you don’t miss this incredible opportunity.
Together with John Bacon, Chief Development Officer for Planned Giving at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and featuring remarks from John Sutton, founder member and Director of Persuasion Republic, we will explore strategies to ensure you are ready to pursue and receive planned gifts.
This conversation is hosted by the King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS), the leading resource in the U.S. to facilitate philanthropic giving to Europe and Africa, and Charities Institute Ireland (CII), a member association that provides leadership in the sector by empowering charities to maximise their impact, particularly through best practice in governance, finance, and sustainable fundraising management.
