    Track 2 – Intermediate Planned Giving

    Determining the best PG prospects
    Todd Simpson, CFRE 

    Vice President for University Advancement and Executive Director
    Missouri Western State University Foundation

    Year after year we are asked to cultivate – solicit – steward a growing number of donors and with this model we often default to the major gift ask because it is immediate. If we had a system to identify our best planned giving prospects, we would be able to manage our strategies better and build long term success for our organizations. Todd will show us how to isolate our best prospects by propensity and capacity and in the end – increase our planned gifts.

    Track 3 – Advanced Planned Giving

    iCLAT’s, don’t wait for your charitable tax deduction
    Brad B. Gornto, Esq., LL.M 
    Effectual Giving, LLC iCLAT Solutions, LLC & Gornto Law, PLLC

    What would you say if asked, “How has Planned Giving changed in the past 10 years?” You would certainly say a lot. There are so many ways our donors may take advantage of the Code to make a planned gift that suits their particular situation. An iCLAT is one of those tools you need in your toolbox. Brad will show us how to identify potential scenarios for this very unique planned gift by defining the tool and use case samples to show us how to implement the iCLAT.

    12:45 p.m.      Luncheon and Plenary Speaker

    Making the Case for PG to your Board
    Todd Simpson, CFRE 
    Vice President for University Advancement and Executive Director
    Missouri Western State University Foundation

    One of the top 5 concerns voiced by attendees at the National Charitable Gift Planners Conference is Board frustration/lack of Board understanding of the planned giving process. We have all had that one Board Member tell us; “Go talk to blank, she/he has tons of money.” Todd will help us build the case with our Boards about how beneficial a Planned Giving Program is for our organization by creating a structure of synergy between PG and our Boards resulting in an increase in prospects and successful solicitations.
