Why has the hoped-for panacea become a sector-wide disillusionment? What do we do now? It appears that the not-for-profit honeymoon with planned giving is over. At our February program, John Gleason will draw on his more than 40 years of development experience to explore the financial, historical and statistical reasons why this has happened. He will cover what you and your organization can - and should - do to effectively solicit planned gifts in the face of shrinking or nonexistent planned giving resources. Currently President and Principal at E.D.A./Gleason, John has worked on the planning or management of eleven major campaign efforts with an aggregate total in excess of $500,000,000.
