Free Webinar for Nonprofits: How to Grow Your Endowment with Legacy Gifts

In today’s uncertain climate, nonprofit fundraising has rarely seemed more challenging. An endowment fund can provide your organization with financial security and can demonstrate to your donors that your nonprofit is established and strategic. A single legacy gift to your endowment can transform your nonprofit forever by providing reliable and easy annual income for your mission.

Join us on Tuesday, November 10 from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm for a free webinar on endowment planning and legacy fundraising. This workshop is for Outer Banks nonprofits of all sizes, with or without current endowments. If your group wants to learn more about building gifts and relationships that will benefit your nonprofit today and for years to come, this workshop is for you. In this engaging, interactive, 90-minute presentation, we will cover:

  • Prospecting: How to identify the best prospects for a planned gift to your endowment
  • Marketing: Good ways of reaching those prospects, and key media and messages to use
  • Talking: How to start a “legacy conversation” one-on-one with your supporters
  • Stewarding: Ways to keep your legacy donors engaged
  • Partnering: How the Community Foundation can support your nonprofit with an endowment fund and planned giving services
