Conversation & Coffee

Date:        September 16, 2015 at 7:30 AM
Playhouse in the Park

This is a Joint Meeting with AFP Greater Cincinnati

Topic: The Power of Engagement:  Integrating Your Donor Communication Strategy 

Over the last five years, advances in online and offline communication methods have narrowed the gap between nonprofits and the donors who support them. This increase in exposure and accessibility enables nonprofits to build deeper relationships with existing donors and develop bonds with newer donors at a rapid pace. Yet, with all this opportunity, many nonprofits struggle to gain a measurable return on investment from their online and offline communication efforts.

Join us to discover a research-based, step-by-step plan for a robust online communication program that resonates with your audience, reinforces your mission and accelerates gift conversations with your donors.

Virtual Seminar - Gifts of Life Insurance 

Date:  September 9, 2015 at 12:00 PM
Location:  Cintas Center

Gifts of Life Insurance
The face amount of individual and group life insurance in force in the U.S. measures in the many trillions of dollars.  That’s trillions, with a "t".  While such a huge store of wealth offers great potential for funding charitable gifts, there are many issues to address before accepting gifts of life insurance. Learn about the different types of life insurance and how they can be used to make charitable gifts during life and at death.  This session will also consider practical questions about accepting, crediting, and managing life insurance policies. 

Presenter: Alison O’Carroll, J.D., MBA

Alison O’Carroll has worked in the field of development and planned giving for over 20 years.  She recently joined the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center as the Associate Director, Planned Giving.
