We will cover:

  1. What data you need to calculate your planned gift potential
  2. How you can take that data and create a projection of future revenues
  3. The best way to present the projections to your board and leadership
  4. How you can measure against those projections moving forward to see if you’re on track
  5. Tried and tested ways you can advocate for more legacy giving budget

How much planned giving potential is in your university’s database? Justifying an investment in legacy giving programs can be tricky. It can take years to realize the benefits of your investments, however, the returns can be transformational for your organization.

Effectively projecting how much potential revenue exists in your database is crucial to build support for making these types of investments and getting support from leadership.
