11:00am The Intention-Action Gap in Legacy Giving (Tracy Malloy-Curtis)
Two problems vex legacy professionals everywhere: 1) Supporters have expressed interest in leaving a bequest for your organization, then….radio silence. 2) Many bequests are realized from donors who never notified you of their gift during their lifetime.

The intention-action gap – the difference between what someone says they will do and what they the ultimately do – is an issue across many areas of human activity. How can we bridge it? Can we bridge it with respect to legacy gift completion? In our discussion, we will identify what we as fundraisers can control in the legacy giving process, identify what we can’t, and explore how to apply this learning to better allocate our time and resources.

12:00pm Lunch

12:45pm Trends in Gift and Estate Planning (Rebecca Bibleheimer)
Between sunsetting tax provisions currently in place and constantly changing proposals for new tax laws, charitable and estate planning has experienced some major priority shifts and new levels of uncertainly. This session will explore how tax code changes and other recent legislation have affected priorities in planning that have shaped our donors’ and clients’ goals and how our gift planning tools can be used to creatively meet these changing planning needs and priorities.

2:00pm Creating Your Legacy Proposition (Tracy Malloy-Curtis)
Create a Legacy of Hope. Help Future Generations. These are standard tropes that many organizations use to frame their legacy messaging. But they are not actually effective or inspiring! We’ll discuss the steps you can take to create or revise your legacy proposition – it’s not as hard as you might think! We will take a look at some effective legacy propositions – and some that are not so effective. We’ll also look at how to utilize your proposition to create a better, more compelling story that inspires your donor to trust you with their vision for the future.

3:30pm-5:00pm Pau Hana/Networking
Meet your peers and enjoy cocktails.
