Engaging your board so they see the value of planned giving is critical.
This slideshow covers “15 Myths Most Nonprofits Fall For.” Myths like “planned gifts take too long, and we need the cash now” choke off planned giving budgets and stunt organizational growth. This presentation shoots down the myths one by one with facts that will convince even the crustiest board member to give planned giving a chance.
Why you need it:
You “get it.” You know planned giving is the key to the future success of your nonprofit and its mission (and your career). If your board members don’t get it, after this presentation — they will. Expand their awareness, change their hearts, and increase the budget they give you for planned giving next year.
