Wednesday, October 24, 2018 San Diego Planned Giving Partnership Luncheon

Topic: Words that Motivate - How to Speak to a Prospect about a Planned Gift

Presenter: Linda Spuck (Principal of Linda Spuck Consulting)

Explaining planned gifts to donors sometimes feels the same as swimming in shark-infested waters…threatening and downright reckless. Using research from Professor Russell James, personal experience, and best practices from our peers, we'll dive into treacherous waters and learn how to come out not only unscathed but successful! We'll explore the words and phrases that motivate donors to give, and which are scarier than a Great White.
