What is Planned Giving and Why Should I Have a Planned Giving Program?

A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning utilized as a method of supporting non-profits, and charities, enables philanthropic individuals, or donors, to make larger gifts than they could make from their income.

Past Presentations

May, 2014, Melissa Brown, of Melissa S. Brown & Associates, presented ‘Using Social Media to Build Social Capital’ to members and guests of the Greater Dayton PPP. Those in attendance learned how an increasing percentage of the population is doing at least some, in one form or another, “connecting” with charities through social media – Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and myriad others. For charitable organizations, and fundraisers in particular, social media is a tool to build stronger connections with potential volunteers, advocates, and donors. Melissa summarized some of the key research about emotions that motivate giving and present examples of successful uses of social media to connect with donors – including for planned giving programs.
