    SESSION HIGHLIGHTS

    Friday, July 21
    9:00a.m. - 10:15a.m.



    Creating Your Personal Brand to Move Your Career Forward

    Colette M. Murray, JD, CFRE, CEO, Pascal Murray

    Explore the possibility of creating your own personalized “brand” to move your career forward. Colette Murray will walk you through the steps of determining how you want to be perceived and how you are actually perceived, and address how you can achieve the professional image you desire. Receive helpful information on creating a “career toolbox” and earn how your overall demeanor affects your personal and professional image. Also get tips on how to ace that all-important interview!


    Demystifying Planned Giving

    Paul Kirchgraber, Development Director, Yavapai College Foundation 

    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. You will also learn what your organization needs in order to successfully implement a new planned giving program, or to increase awareness of an existing effort. 

    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!
