It has been said in the fund-raising industry that less than 30% of all existing estate gifts are ever communicated to the beneficiary organization. While it is exciting and gratifying when these estate gifts mature, at the same time, it is always frustrating when we, as organizations, realize we were not able to recognize these generous donors during their lifetimes. Building an effective estate-giving program can be a life saver to an organization. However, estate programs are often low on the fund development organizations plans when most are worried about day-to-day operations support.
We can help organizations understand the importance of estate giving and help change the culture with donors, volunteers, staff and board members.
