**Plus a bonus session at 10:15am! -- "The Gift Planning Talk: Cat Got Your Tongue?"

The Fort Worth Club
306 W. 7th Street
Fort Worth, TX  76102
Program Title: 
  Blended Gifts: Serving Our Donors

It seems like everyone's talking about blended gifts, and for good reason: melding our donor's financial interests with just the right mix of gift plans will increase affinity, make current major and principal gifts larger, and lead to in truly transformational gifts.
This session will begin with a quick overview of some readily accessible gift planning tools and present several real-life applications with an emphasis on practical.
It might seem uncomfortable at first, but this is about our donor's legacy and we honor their life's work when we open these discussions.  So get comfortable with the uncomfortable ... it's our job and our donors deserve it.
