August Members Luncheon

The Fort Worth Club
12th Floor
306 West Seventh Street
Fort Worth, TX 76102

Program Title:
      "Develop and Sustain Planned Giving Programs and Estate Planning"

Planned Giving is - or should be - a serious consideration in any forward-thinking development program. This presentation adds perspective to the what, how, and when questions you may have about starting or growing your Planned Giving efforts. Whether you are a one-person shop or a development professional with Planned Giving on your "to do" list, this session will help "de-mystify" many pre-conceived notions about this significant area of fund raising.

We will include an overview of planned gifts, planned gift vehicles, keys to success, goals and a primer for starting or invigorating your Planned Giving program. This overview is an informative, non-technical, user-friendly time with a guarantee you will leave with additional knowledge about Planned Giving.
