You are a fundraiser. Well, that’s one of the hats you wear. You know that for your charity to take action on its mission, a consistent flow of donations is essential. You’ve got current giving pretty well in hand – for the moment – but you’d love to diversify and think long term by incorporating legacy giving, aka inviting donors to make a gift in their will. You can think of one or two donors you’d like to ask right now, but approaching them – what to say? Death and taxes – aren’t those topics to avoid? And don’t we need a lawyer to do this?
Oh dear, this sounds complicated, and you haven’t got time for that.
