Free webinar for Outer Banks nonprofits on how to grow your endowment with legacy gifts

In today’s uncertain climate, nonprofit fundraising has rarely seemed more challenging. Endowment funds can provide organizations with financial security and can demonstrate to donors that a nonprofit is established and strategic.

A single legacy gift to an endowment can transform a nonprofit forever by providing reliable and easy annual income for its mission.

Nonprofit leaders are encouraged to join the Outer Banks Community Foundation on Tuesday, November 10 from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm for a free webinar on endowment planning and legacy fundraising.

This workshop is for Outer Banks nonprofits of all sizes, with or without current endowments. Those wanting to learn more about building gifts and relationships that will benefit their nonprofit today and for years to come should make plans to attend.

This engaging, interactive, 90-minute presentation will cover:

  • Prospecting: How to identify the best prospects for a planned gift
  • Marketing: Good ways of reaching those prospects, and key media and messages to use
  • Talking: How to start a “legacy conversation” one-on-one with supporters
  • Stewarding: Ways to keep legacy donors engaged
  • Partnering: How the Community Foundation supports nonprofits with endowment fund and planned giving services
