On June 5, 2013, Trevor Clark and myself will be delivering the “Planned Giving Institute” for AFP Toronto’s Fundraising Day.

Here is a brief description of the 3 hour presentation:

Planned Giving Institute: Program and Development

Wednesday, June 5, 2013 8:30 am -12:00 pm
Mark Blumberg, LL.M., TEP , Trevor Clark, CFRE
The Planned Giving Institute will help you to introduce current practices in establishing a strong gift planning program in your organization. Whether you are a sole practitioner in a small office or a development staff member in a larger team, you will learn how to lay the groundwork for a successful planned giving program, integrated it with your organization’s current programs, and engaging key internal and external advocates and learning from others who have overseen the creation of a dynamic planned giving program from the ground up. Using lecture, panel and case presentations, Trevor Clark and Mark Blumberg will discuss bequests and planned giving.
Learning Outcomes
• Learn what you need to know about planned giving to begin a new program or kick start an existing one
• Understand how to become successful without being a gift planning expert
• Take away practical tools and techniques for integrating gift planning into your organization’s development activities, sustaining the program and measuring its success.
