Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia 

Please join us for our Janurary NPO CONNECT meeting! We will hear from Luke Young, Vice President and Trust Officer at American National Bank. This workshop will focus on why it is important for the health and future of a nonprofit organization to establish and/or build on a strong Planned Giving program. 

We hope to see you there! 

Let's Talk About: Planned Giving 

This presentation will discuss what planned giving is and why it is important for the health and future of a nonprofit organization. It will cover the steps to starting or growing a successful planned giving program, and finish with an introduction to some of the more sophisticated estate planning techniques of which nonprofit development officers should be aware. 

Nonprofit staff and board members are welcome!  Space is limited.

COST: Free! Please note that if you register and are unable to make the networking event, you will need to let Foundation staff know immediately so that others may participate. Registrants who do not show will automatically be added to the wait list for the next networking meeting.
