By 2030, all Baby Boomers will be over age 65!  Utilizing retirement assets within a charitable giving plan offers a significant opportunity to maximize philanthropy for donors no matter their worth.  The ability for your institution to initiate meaningful donor conversations integrating retirement assets as a philanthropic tool is critical for current and future fundraising success. In this session, you’ll learn how financial and philanthropic professionals can start those impactful conversations for tax minimization, gift optimization, and life satisfaction. Participants will leave this session with practical strategies for leveraging retirement assets to spark gift conversations and maximize philanthropy.
