Upcoming Workshop
Create A Legacy Campaign - Monday, April 23, 2018
                                                 Marquette, MI

Learn insights from Carole J. Pence, President of Pence Consulting on how to create a Legacy Campaign, encouraging your high-interest donors to name your institution to receive a donation from their estate. First, a donor has to have a will and second, you have to encourage them to leave a legacy to your organization in their will. This workshop will help you have the courage to start a program that could provide financial stability in the future. There are seven steps in the process, and the long-term approach takes two years to establish.

You will Learn:

· Strategies for effectively marketing your program;

· Understanding what motivates people to put you in their Will;

·The importance of relationships between your board, staff and donors;

· What research shows us;

· And several suggestions on where to start.
