Northern California Planned Giving Council 
Planned Giving Basics Course
(October 1, 2020 - November 5, 2020) 

Six-Part Course for Beginners 

(a refresher course for intermediates)

Are you interested in learning the basics of planned giving? Or are you looking to enhance your existing planned giving program? If so, please join us for a six-part, 15-hour program teaching the basics of planned giving (also known as legacy giving). 
The Northern California Planned Giving Council, in association with our event sponsor Crescendo Interactive, Inc., is proud to present the 2020 Planned Giving Basics Course. This introductory course features instruction from some of the most experienced planned giving practitioners in the Bay Area. Students will receive handouts and materials provided by each session instructor to use during the series and to keep as a reference. 

Each 2.5 hour session is interactive and will be presented online via RingCentral. While we are operating in a virtual world, opportunities to ask questions, have discussions, and become acquainted and network with fellow attendees will be made available for the best possible experience. 
All sessions will be live and will not be recorded; please ensure your availability on dates below before registering.
