Topic: Speaking to Seniors: How They Hear What We Say 

This session will reveal the practical applications of understanding the senior’s mindset. If we imagine that seniors are concerned about loss of control over their life,  fear of outliving their resources, unforeseen health issues, eventual death, and how will they be remembered ; how can we have the most sensitive and effective planned giving conversation to enable them to create their legacy.

One of the most important benefits of GCPGC membership is the opportunity to network with local colleagues and to learn from each other. We hope our new after-work socials will offer our longtime members more time to get to know each other, and provide a fun setting for our newer members to meet and learn more about our chapter.

At the upcoming social, please help us welcome some of our newest GCPGC members.

Virtual Seminar - Stewardship of Planned Gift Donors

Date:        November 04, 2015 at 12:00 PM
Location:  Cintas Center

Stewardship of Planned Gift Donors
Many equate stewardship of planned giving donors to holding an annual event and stop there. While an event can be a good starting point, it is not for every organization and it should not be the end of the stewardship effort. This session will explore the many other ways to steward your donors throughout the year and to make the most of your opportunities. In addition to the activities that can be done, we'll talk about the emotional aspect of stewardship and the state of mind that will help you be truly successful. Practical examples from years in the field will be shared to help illustrate how you can strengthen stewardship of planned gift donors at your organization. 

Presenter: Alison O'Carroll Associate Director, Planned Giving, Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center and Sara Elward, recently retired Manager of Gift Planning at KCTS .
