Great ready to dive into the numbers and see what they expose!

Educating and engaging your board members requires empathy, clear expectations, proper training and tools, and consistent communications.

December 10, 2012, CASE V & VI Conference, Chicago, IL
"The role of planned giving in a campaign: Why it is important and how you count and credit future planned gifts" Presented by Bruce Matthews, Vice President with Campbell & Company.
Campaigns are episodic events that enable an institution to tell its story and address the current private funding needs that will enable it to achieve its vision. However, many institutions fail to take full advantage of this campaign period by not determining the role of future planned gifts and developing strategies to solicit, count and credit these gifts. This roundtable will focus on the role of planned giving in a campaign, how a campaign goal is set for future gifts, and how they are counted, credited and reported.
