CCPG will be offering Introduction to Planned Giving Essentials as a Pre-Symposium session on May 27, 2020.  This session provides the basics to charitable gift planning with focus on prospect profiles, best assets for gift planning, gifts through donors’ estate plans, “life income” gifts such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts, and making planned giving work in a small office.
