Specail Live Session - Planning for Buster

Date:  May 10, 2017 at 12:00 PM
Location:  Cintas Center
Cost:  $10 for non-members

Planning for Buster
Buster Mayberry is a long-time loyal donor to High State University. He's worked with a succession of fundraisers and other staff over the years, but no one has really figured out how to activate his passion for the organization or his full giving capacity. In this program, you'll get to know Buster just as you would in real life--by listening to him talk with planned and major gift fundraisers, family members and advisors. And you'll work together with other council members to consider philanthropic options tailored to his style and values. The real “Buster” was an important person in the career of a young major gift officer who was just beginning to understand the power of blended giving. If you've already worked with many donors like Buster, you'll have a lot to contribute in this interactive program. And if you're just getting started, you'll gain confidence for the challenges that lie ahead. 

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Listen for clues that help to connect a donor’s passions with the mission of your organization.
  2. Draft an Attribute Map to help identify the best philanthropic options for Buster.
  3. Practice addressing common objections or obstacles to blended and/or planned gifts.

Conversation & Coffee

Date:  May 17, 2017 at 7:30 AM
Location:  Playhouse in the Park

Topic:  Charitable Lead Trusts: Real World Applications

Speaker:  Robert E. Brant

Bob Brant has an uncanny ability to do five things at once, and all of them proficiently.  He was multitasking before the term even existed. 

He may be entering a timesheet while he dissects a tax problem and actively participates in a meeting. Just when you think there is no possible way he could be listening and doing so much simultaneously, out will pop a sentence that gets right to the heart of the matter.  Those who have not been initiated will often sit back in stunned silence, even awe.  But this is an everyday thing for Bob, as his clients have come to know and appreciate. 

Bob's practice is most concentrated in the areas of estate and wealth planning and employment benefits. He represents a large number of medical practices and works in the taxation, estate planning, retirement planning and business planning areas. In addition, he works on a number of health care-related matters, has structured numerous physician practice mergers, and has been involved in designing compensation systems for many of these practices.
