Blended Gifts:  Accomplish Fundraising Goals Strategically

Your donors seek options in establishing meaningful gifts, both in size and effect. Asking donors to make a “blended gift” is a strategy which will help you and your organization raise much needed mission-critical funds. With the popularity of blended gifts as a gifting strategy and a way to hit those ever increasing fundraising goals, those who work with the charitably inclined (fundraisers and advisors), need to be prepared for when their clients request assistance exploring blended gifts as a way to achieve their personal, financial, and estate planning goals. This presentation will include case studies to demonstrate how blended giving can enhance donor goals, while not detracting or derailing retirement and financial plans AND ensure your organization raises more money!
