Legacy Giving at Lunch Series: Part 1 – Engaging Donors Through Powerful Questions
(Part 1 in the 3-Part Legacy Giving At Lunch Discussion Series)
Engaging Your Donors Through Powerful Questions
Date and Time: April 11, 12:00pm, CST
Location: Conference Call
Session Description: Conversations with your donors about legacy giving don’t have to be awkward. Over the years, we’ve learned that one of the primary challenges that holds fundraisers back from securing planned gifts is not knowing how to bring the idea of legacy into the conversation with their donor. Scott Nelson, Director of Gift Planning at the Benedictine Health Systems Foundation, will help you consider how to purposefully ask questions that can open the door to a conversation about giving.
There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions of Scott and each other.
