The Job of Planned Giving Marketing
Donor goes to the mailbox, right?
They’re not looking to get educated about the latest and greatest of the Cares Act. They are not go to their mailbox to find out exactly how a charitable remainder trust works. They’re not going to their mailbox for anything in particular!
When they open that mailbox, it is the job of marketing to get their attention to deliver some degree of information that inspires them to consider what it is that you want them to do.
But if you go too fast you’re going to lose them, because most people are not in the state of mind where when they obey the mailbox they are looking to be educated on ways to make a gift. It’s just not how it works.
