Chasing Unicorns? – PSA 3

It’s easy to get sucked into the allure of a sexy, complex gift – the elusive ‘unicorns’ of the planned giving world.

But it’s the small gifts that come in regularly and frequently that provide the stable base for an organization. Greg Wilson, Sr. Major Gifts and Planned Giving Officer at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation in Allentown, PA, gives us a practical solution for how to use marketing to focus on this broader segment of your donor donor base, rather than the unicorns. Developing stronger relationships with the “every day donors” will become increasingly more important as fundraisers look for news ways to fill the pipeline.

Listen for tips on how to use planned giving marketing during the Covid 19 crisis to nurture donors and keep them connected to your organization.
