Working With a Donor's Advisors-
The Key to Completing More Gifts
Presented by:  Robert F. Sharpe, Jr. 

When a donor indicates a desire to make a gift as part of his or her financial and estate plans or accelerate previously arranged gifts, it is often necessary to work with one or more advisors to facilitate a donor's wishes. This session explores the role advisors play, with special attention to the types of gifts they might wish to encourage-or discourage-depending on their perspectives. Learn how to work with advisors in ways that help complete gifts and build relationships that can result in increased future gifts as well.
