Join us for an informative and always entertaining morning with Carol Weisman as she shares her insights about planned giving. At lunch, Carol will share stories of two people who have unique and creative ways to impact the world after they are gone.  Bring your board and staff for the full morning or just for lunch, so that they can be enthusiastic participants in planned giving. You’ll leave with answers to these important questions:

  • Are you ready for planned giving?
  • What are the steps to get ready?
  • Is it worth the time and money?
  • If you, who should ask for a gift?
  • Which donors should you approach?
  • What language do you use?
  • How do you steward your planned givers?

Coming from out of town? We have a room block at the Kanasas City Marriott Country Club Plaza for $179.00 per night. This block is good through Tuesday, January 16, 2018.
