Topic: Wills that Won’t: Results from a 20+ year national study on when people add and remove charitable estate beneficiaries and who ultimately makes actual gifts at death

Having the most impact in legacy fundraising means connecting with the right people at the right time. This presentation shares scientifically valid results from a large, federally-funded, national study that reveals who actually leaves charitable gifts and when they added those gifts.  Equally important, you will find out when people who had charity in their estate plan dropped those gifts from their plans.  Using a variety of national statistics, this presentation also reveals upcoming trends in charitable estate planning (and why some earlier predictions were massively inaccurate). Move beyond "war stories" and common practices by learning the statistical reality of what actually happens in the world of charitable estate planning.
