Creating Successful Gift Strategies; Presenter: Katherine McKay, Director of Gift Planning, College of the Holy Cross

Creating a successful gift strategy requires identifying the fears that can stop our prospects – or us – dead. We’ll explore ways to overcome these fears so that both sides feel braver and more capable of creating a meaningful gift. You are invited to see your own particular fear addressed, eg., “I’m afraid my donor will be outraged at the ask amount,” by emailing your fear(s) to kmckay@holycross.edu by September 30th. All fears will be anonymous!

Risk Versus Reward: Making the Case for Gifts of Real Estate

Presenter: Liz Siladi, Director of Gift Planning, Bentley University

As Mark Twain allegedly once said, “buy property because they’re not making any more of it.” That sentiment has been at the heart of American prosperity for generations. While some could argue that the tide is turning for our youngest generations, those whom we look to most often for major gifts to our organizations are likely to have accumulated wealth in real estate. But does real estate make a good charitable gift? This presentation will make the case for adding real estate to your charitable program by exploring the risks and rewards from both a donor’s and an institution’s point of view.
