Five Steps to a Successful Endowment
While every institution wants an endowment, few have the ability to prioritize endowment over current revenue. Endowment is no longer a luxury - it is a necessity. And if you structure and position the endowment well with donors, it is a logical next step in the donor relationship. In this Master's Session, you'll learn from an expert how to build an endowment (structure, policies, and board role), position endowment with donors (case for support, communication, and reporting), engage donors (how to identify prospects and make the ask), build endowment assets (through planned gifts), and manage the endowment (fund management, reporting, and stewardship). It is a detailed review of the essentials that impact executive staff, financial staff, and development staff.
The Role of the Board in Building a Successful Endowment/Planned Giving Program
In the current economic climate, charities from universities, hospitals, arts organizations, to social welfare organizations are focused on building resources to ensure the future. The charity's board of directors/trustees plays a critical role in the charity's success in building endowment and ensuring a consistent, growing planned giving program. This session, designed for board members and those who work with the board, addresses endowment and planned giving as part of the board's fiduciary role. It details seven facts about endowment and planned giving every board member needs to understand, and then sets out five steps every board member should take to ensure success.
Perfecting Donor Intent: Legal Lessons and Practical Advice
Donors who make charitable gifts with the directive to "use the gift where it is most needed" are a disappearing breed. In their place are donors who have specific visions and goals for the use of their contributions. While it is the donor's vision that drives the gift - resulting in an increasing number of large charitable gifts - charities have found the clearer the vision, the sharper the gift's edge. What happens when the charity desperately needs current operating funds? What should happen when the donor's designated gift purpose is no longer viable or appropriate? What should the charity do when the gift produces more revenue than needed for the specified purpose? That's when things can get complicated. This session provides a practical and legal perspective for donors, their advisors, and charities to avoid transforming a great gift into a cautionary tale.

Afternoon Session:How to Have a Conversation about Charitable Giving with Clients
Pew Charitable Trusts recently conducted a research study of the professional financial advisor community to better understand their views on philanthropy. Approximately 75 professionals from seven leading financial institutions participated in the study. The Pew Study found that 92 percent of the advisors polled are asking their clients about philanthropic interests compared to 80 percent reported four years earlier. The study also revealed that 91 percent of advisors felt that being able to address philanthropic needs would differentiate themselves in the eyes of existing and would be clients. Interestingly, less than half, reported that they are "comfortable" bringing up philanthropy with their clients. Advisors cited their interest in learning more about how to help with " the softer side of philanthropy such as understanding passion and interests - and translating that into a family mission or values statement."
Learn from two of Charlotte's most well respected professional advisors and a veteran development professional about how they initiate conversations with clients about their philanthropic interests. Panelists will also highlight an example of a successful relationship between an advisor and a nonprofit -- and the strategies that nonprofits can employ to build meaningful partnerships with professional advisors.

Zen and the Art of Solicitation: Enhancing Your Skills During These Difficult Times
Wednesday, September 2, 2009
9:30 a.m - 4:30 p.m.
Location: UNCG Campus, Elliot University Center, Cone Ballroom A&B
1400 Spring Garden Street, Greensboro, NC
Presenter: John Brown, President and Founder, John Brown Limited, Inc., Peterborough, NH
Have you ever attended a development seminar that promises to address the intersection of major and planned gifts with the highest of expectations only to lose interest when it turns out to be just a dry recitation all of planned gift vehicles and their definitions? Yawn... This extended session with John Brown promises to be truly different. You will learn dynamic strategies you can take back and begin implementing immediately.
Key Goals of the sessions include increasing your comfort level when meeting with your planned and major gifts prospects by providing ideas for conversations with donors and redefining the pool of prospects.
Morning Session: Fund Raising in a Tough Economic Climate
This session will focus on donor opportunities for major and planned gifts in the current economic climate and how institutions are responding to the challenge. Are your donors backing away from making large commitments? John will provide the tools and strategies to help you plan an approach that makes sense for your donors and your institution.
Working Lunch: Preparing for a Donor Visit - A Case Study
The Luncheon Session will provide a Case Study to prepare you and a key volunteer-such as a board member-for a donor visit. No more just simply handing your volunteer a profile to read! You will learn a specific style of preparation to get the work done, complete the gift, and thoroughly engage your volunteer in the process.
First Afternoon Session: Know Your Prospect - Interviewing Techniques
In the afternoon, the focus will be on instrumentation and implementation. Learn practical techniques to interview prospective donors to probe for information you can use to help them achieve their philanthropic goals. (It is more than admiring the office and asking about the people in the photo.)
Second Afternoon Session: Donor Expectations
What are the expectations of donors/prospects today? What are you and your institution doing regarding stewardship? These are interesting times we are facing but there are opportunities that we haven't had before. John will give us ideas about what we can do to adapt in this new donor and non-profit environment.
John Brown founded John Brown Limited in 1978 on the philosophy that development professionals are most effective when their strategies include respect for donors' interests; relationship building; rehearsed, but comfortable solicitation; and planned giving integrated into all major gift endeavors. The hallmark of John's counsel is to motivate organizational leaders in building ownership among their constituents, and consistently achieving a greater level of success in fundraising.
Under John's leadership, JBL has served thousands of clients. By fostering donor ownership and respect, his clients run capital and endowment campaigns, effective major/planned gift programs and, most importantly, long-term financial and membership growth.
Prior to opening his own firm, John served in several major gifts and planned giving positions at Syracuse University. He later created and directed the planned giving program at Harvard University, and was a founding member of the Planned Giving Group of New England. John volunteers his time lecturing at professional nonprofit conferences each year, including CASE and AFP.
