Practical Planned Giving Post Pandemic with Paul Nazareth

Philanthropy is a critical part of Canada’s history, current social health and future return from this economic crisis. We will discuss national trends before this crisis and insight from several experts on what building back better could look like. CAGP’s mission includes that advisors already play a growing role in philanthropy – how have they fit in during this crisis and how can we activate and work with them in the rebuilding phase? We will review a number of Canadian resources and data, then discuss how to adapt to today’s donor and funder landscape recognizing that many charities now have even less resources and capacity. You will leave with a better understanding of where we are as a sector, as a community here in Newfoundland and Labrador and where you need to adjust your fundraising strategy for the days ahead so planned giving doesn’t just live “on the side of your desk”. We will also share insight into the data and strategy as CAGP transitions from the past “Leave a Legacy” to the 2021 “Will Power” public bequest campaign in this joint collaboration with our local NL CAGP Chapter!
On Thursday July 9, 2020 join Paul Nazareth as he shares his insight into Planned Giving.

June 2020 Professional Development Opportunity
Does your organization incorporate fundraising with social media?

Social Media is a great way for those in the nonprofit sector to expand their sphere of influence. Many  charities continue to rely heavily on direct marketing tactics such as flyers and direct mail campaigns. Although these offline strategies are an important part of a well-balanced marketing plan, organizations run the risk of missing out on increased reach and donations if they fail to incorporate digital into their overall objectives.
