As our society ages, problems of incapacity and undue influence magnify. It can be challenging for professionals who deal with the donor community to walk the fine line between strong advocacy and being overbearing. Particularly in an environment where contact is increasingly online and/or impersonal, it can be difficult to know how to deal with donors whose capacity may be diminished.  This session is targeted toward nonprofit executives, development professionals, professional advisors and agency fundholders.
