Conference Overview

  • Join us to hear Tycely Williams, CFRE, our conference keynote speaker.
  • Participate in nine breakout sessions across three learning tracks (Donor Engagement, Behind the Scenes and Getting Technical) to learn from industry leaders, gift planners and sponsors.
    • Donor Engagement – Planned giving is all about the relationship. This track focuses on building relationships with your donors and prospects through marketing, personalized engagement, and stewardship.
    • Behind the Scenes – A strong planned giving program is built on the behind-the-scenes systems and operations highlighted in this track, like estate administration, recruitment and retention of planned giving staff, and other best practices.
    • Getting Technical – Technicalities like taxes, laws, and gift structures can maximize a donor’s giving potential. Learn about or refresh yourself on the technical details in this track.
  • Celebrate the 2024 Distinguished Service Award honoree to honor excellence in planned giving.
  • This program meets CAP® (re)certification requirements and has been submitted for 5 credits toward CFRE (re)certification.
  • Scholarships are also available.
