The Soul of Charitable Gift Planning

The session will address the people and events that shaped our profession, our values and our practices and made us who we are today. This historical to present day perspectives on philanthropy and charitable gift planning is appropriate for a broad audience.  Institutional leaders, major gift and planned giving officers and estate and financial planners are better armed to more effectively meet the needs of donors, clients and nonprofits alike when they are familiar with five major events that shaped the values and practices of our profession.  Considered a leading historian and practitioner in the field, Ron will lead us in a unique exploration of gift planning and the important implications for our work.
