Focus on Fundraising Series | Create a Lasting Legacy through Planned Giving and Legacy Gifts

One of the simplest and most common ways to leave a lasting legacy is by leaving a planned gift.

We’ll also spend some time reviewing the most important pieces for your planned giving program. Help your donors understand how they can support the work that you do long into the future to create a lasting legacy.
