State Registrations: What You Need to Know

Nonprofit organizations generally have some level of state regulatory compliance requirements associated with particular gifts or fundraising activities. Whatever your role, it's good to have an idea of the types of requirements that exist.

Gift Planning in Major Development: Is a happy marriage possible? 

Whether the organizational chart shows major gifts and planned gifts as two departments or one, true fundraising success depends at least somewhat on a happy union of the two programs.  We will discuss the perspectives of both the major gift professional and the gift planning professional to identify shared goals, appropriate roles, and what skills, culture, and counseling this marriage needs to be happy and productive.

"A Very Significant Donor Died - - - Now What?"

This presentation seeks to broaden the understanding of death-related administration of estates and trusts from the point of view of a professional fiduciary, who also happens to be a recovering trust and estate attorney and a former planned giving officer. Through increased knowledge of death-related administration, the goal is to provide planned giving professionals with tools to help them advocate more effectively for their organizations, better understand their rights and how to protect them, and enhance their ability to communicate with the fiduciaries responsible for the delivery of charitable gifts following the death of a donor.
