YOUR FUNDING IS CRITICAL . . .
Did you know most nonprofits need to replace 20 - 50% of their funding each year due to attrition or that 80% of organizations we talk to KNOW Planned Giving is important to the future of their organization but have not started a program yet? On top of that so many miss out on potential dollars with their capital campaign because they did not have the proper guidance. The MORE funding you raise the MORE lives you can change in a MORE impactful way.
