Are you starting a planned giving program, or is your planned giving program in need of a boost?  Please join us for the Summer Webinar Series presented by PPP-LA and sponsored by Crescendo.  The webinars are complimentary.  The next webinar will take place Tuesday, July 26, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. PDT.

Blended Gifts
On July 26, 2016 at 11 a.m. PDT, we will discuss blended  gifts combine current and major gifts with planned gifts. Why might a donor be interested in a blended gift? Many donors are able to maximize their giving with a combination major and planned gift. The "double ask" is now common in most capital campaigns. When individuals decide to create an endowment with a major gift, they often want to ensure that their gift continues into the future. This presentation will contain specific examples of blended gifts from trustees, business owners and investors. Blended gifts are the future of planned giving!
