What words increase interest in making a bequest gift? What job titles work best for donors? How should you describe a complex gift to generate the most interest? This presentation shares results from a series of surveys uncovering the words and phrases that work best to encourage interest in planned giving. Dr. James begins with an overview of the neurological processes that drive charitable decision-making and explains how these processes link to the survey results on optimum word choice. Learn practical, scientifically-based approaches that will increase your effectiveness in communicating about planned giving.
