Topic:  The Unique Benefits (and Challenges) of Securing Blended Gifts

An increasing priority for charitable organizations, blended gifts provide donors the opportunity to make a meaningful gift today emboldened by a gift in the future. However, these donor-centric solicitations demand a combination of “urgency” and “patience” which can make them challenging to incorporate into an organization’s fundraising culture. We will begin by reviewing the mechanics and benefits of blended gifts, the barriers many organizations face to securing these gifts, explore what Ohio State is doing to address those barriers, and look at some donor scenarios where a blended gift discussion could be your next step.

Gift Planning in a Capital Campaign

The University of Pennsylvania completed its recent “Making History” campaign with gifts of more than 4.3 billion dollars, surpassing the original goal of 3.5 billion dollars more than a year early. In this session, we will focus on the lessons learned about gift planning in a capital campaign - highlighting the issues and strategies for effectively incorporating gift planning into your capital campaign and more broadly into your development program. Attendees will leave with specific ideas and solutions for gift acceptance, counting and recognition, fostering donor participation, and increasing collaboration among development colleagues. We will examine performance metrics and other measurements designed to influence behavior and quantify results (including examples from Penn and Penn Medicine).

Presenter:  Lynn Malzone  Ierardi, PhD
