The Center for Healthy Nonprofits is offering a four-part series on Fundraising for Nonprofits that will cover both the basics for beginners and advanced topics for organizations with an interest and the capacity to invest focused resources in advancing their development programs.

CEO’s/Executive Directors, development staff at all levels, and board members/volunteers engaged in fundraising may find one or more of the programs in this series informative and useful.  You need not register for all 4 sessions. However, fundraising certificates will be provided upon request to those who participate in all the sessions.


Session 3: Nuts + Bolts – Building a Basic Planned Giving Program

This session will give you the tools to assess your non-profit and determine your readiness for accepting planned gifts.  The session will cover how to do an inventory of where you are now; the nature of different types of gifts; beneficiary designations; gift policies and investment policies; issues related to receiving stock and IRA gifts; and donor recognition.  The necessary infrastructure will be broken down to essential components.  Ideas for marketing your program to donors will also be provided.
