We 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.

In this webinar, learn how to proactively address change in a way that supports your values and vision, rather than feeling reactive and disempowered. You will walk away with a better understanding of how to design successful organizational change.
