Program Description: The simplest way is often the best. Computer presentations and printed proposals are nice, but when you meet face to face with a donor, a few boxes and arrows can be a powerful way to convey your message about a gift that is personalized to his or her situation. If you cannot explain the concept on a napkin, then your donors won't be able to explain it to family and others who help with philanthropic decision-making. This session demonstrates simple, direct ways to show how all kinds of charitable trusts work from a donor's perspective.
