Your 2021 Annual Campaign: Lessons Learned from the Pandemic

Presenter: Jim Kauffman, B.S., M.Ed., Y Alum
Human Performance Development | Kauffman Consultancy LLC

“Unique” describes Y Annual Support Campaigns in 2020. Everyone knows it’s been quite a year. For some Ys, 2020 has been a banner year for raising money; for others, it’s been a disaster. We interviewed a sampling of Ys of all sizes across the country to find out what they did in 2020, what worked, what didn’t, the shifts they had to make in their annual campaign processes, and how they mentally approached fundraising. We also asked how 2020 results are being used to structure 2021 fundraising strategies. Guaranteed you’ll gain useful information you can immediately use NOW in your 2021 fundraising efforts.

The 90% Problem - Cultivating Major Gifts by Preserving Family Wealth

Presenter: Damon King, CFP® and Y Alum

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and Investment Advisor
ChappelWood Financial Services

The Great Wealth Transfer will see $59 trillion in accumulated wealth pass to children and grandchildren by 2061, representing a tremendous opportunity for nonprofit organizations. Yet, 90% of wealthy families will see their wealth ‒ along with their support of cherished charitable causes like the Y ‒ disappear within three generations. The reason is simple: talking about money remains taboo in most families. By introducing the Legacy Portrait to your donors and members, you can help families identify and communicate a set of shared values and increase the odds of preserving their wealth. In turn, your Y will develop deeper donor relationships and strengthen your ability to solicit and receive transformational major gifts across multiple generations.
