Planned Giving Council

Membership Luncheon Event

Thursday, February 29, 2024

Win/Win/Winning the Fundraising Game:

Conquering Planned Giving (PART 1)  

Join Trevor Whitley, CFA, CFP, AIF, Partner with Marquis Wealth Management Group, for part one of our two-meeting series on planned giving.  Secrets will be unlocked for success in philanthropic endeavors, starting with the essential groundwork of planned giving basics.


During this presentation, you’ll gain valuable insights on promoting philanthropic giving effectively, such as the fundamentals of tax          efficiency for donors and ensuring that their contributions maximize intended impact. 


While it’s convenient to receive donations through traditional methods like credit cards or checks, Trevor will demonstrate how a little extra time to coordinate a gift from a donor’s portfolio can promote larger gifts. This in turn will save donors during tax time and deepen their relationship with your organization. It’s a win-win-win situation for all involved- the client/donor, the charitable organization and you, the professional. You won’t want to miss part 1 of this important topic!
