Track 1: Dylan Hendricks – 1) How to Implement Your Gift Planning Program Today, 2) Tools for Effective Planned Gift Administration

From soup to nuts, Dylan will explain 1) how to start working on bequests, beneficiary designations, IRA charitable rollovers, and gifts of appreciated stock. She will also introduce the idea of working with community foundations and professional trustees on more complex gifts. 2) how to get the most out of realized gifts including: evaluating gifts before acceptance, accepting and acknowledging gifts, working with trustees, requesting and reviewing accountings, and determining when to pursue litigation.

Track 2: Kevin Crilly – Solving Donor Problems Using Complex Planned Gifts

Using hypothetical donor situations, Kevin will work with participants to use complex planned gifts (real property, mortgage issues, unusual funding for CRT’s and gift annuities) to solve donor problems.
