What is LEAVE A LEGACY ™ Arizona
The LEAVE A LEGACY ™ Arizona program is an initiative of the Planned Giving Round Table of Arizona (PGRTAZ). PGRTAZ is a membership association that is joined by people who have come together to support charitable causes for the betterment of society. The Partnership for Philanthropic Planning (PPP) is the parent organization of PGRTAZ. The PPP developed the LAL program, now in 43 states and Canada. The program was started nationally so LEAVE A LEGACY ™ would have a profound impact on our communities. The national, as well as statewide focus, increases public awareness and interest in charitable estate gift planning.
We invite your participation and involvement in LALAZ. Become a Partner by becoming a member of PGRTAZ
. The demand for charitable services is outpacing what charities can do to help. Joining PGRTAZ will help build a strong and vibrant charitable community that offers a variety of services to those who want and need them.
As a non profit community member, donor, grantmaker or professional adviser, you are essential to the program's success. Your partnership informs and assists Arizonans in including charitable gifts in their wills or estate plans.
LEAVE A LEGACY ™ Arizona - Become a PartnerBroad participation will make LALAZ a long-term success. In order to enable all Arizona charities to join the progam, we've change the way LALAZ operates. There is non longer an annual fee to be a partner with LALAZ -- only a membership in the Planned Giving Round Table of Arizona (PGRTAZ) by a staff person is required. All LALAZ marketing materials - including the popular Write a Will Workshop materials - are available to the organizations represented by PGRT members.
Again, there is no longer an annual fee to be a Partner. LALAZ relies on the generous support of our sponsors for the purchased media efforts by LALAZ in support of our Partner's related marketing efforts. Thanks to those sponosors a robust media effort will be launch in the Spring and Fall of 2010. The day-to-day assistance to our Partner organizations will be provide by the volunteer leaders of PGRTAZ, at no additional cost to our PGRTAZ members and the LALAZ Partner organizations that they represent.
In order to fulfill requests for assistance related to LALAZ outreach, additional volunteers are WELCOME! If you would like to help us spread the word about how LALAZ can help promote bequest marketing among Arizona not-for-profit organizations, get involved!
