This presentation is for anyone who has ever left a planned giving seminar confused by the alphabet soup of NIM CRUTs, CRATS, GIFs etc. Come prepared to learn the 3 most common planned gift types, and understand why you don’t have to be a lawyer, CPA or financial planner to initiate conversation about estate gifts with your donors.

Seeing More Gifts From Donor-Advised Funds?
Clyde Kunz, Vice President, Community Foundation for Southern Arizona
Donor-advised funds (DAFs) are becoming more commonplace as many donors’ preferred method for supporting charitable causes. Nonprofit professionals sometimes struggle to find answers to several questions: How should these gifts be acknowledged? Can donor benefits be awarded to the individual(s) who started the DAF? Just how do DAFs work, and how do I talk with my organization’s donors about them? In this session, we will address the answers to these questions and more, with a goal of becoming more comfortable talking with donors about DAFs, and ensuring that our nonprofits and our donors stay clear of possible IRS problems!
