With the advent of advanced computation and “big data”, metrics of fund raising activities are prevalent throughout all types of organizations. When it comes to measuring the effectiveness of a gift planning program, what are the best measures? When it comes to measuring the effectiveness of blended gifts, what are the best measures? Although not all “planned” gifts are deferred, much of the work of individual gift planners will pay off in the future—often after the original fundraiser has left the organization and the donor relationship and stewardship of the commitment have changed hands, perhaps several times. CGP's Metrics Task Force is examining best approach to setting goals and measuring performance for fundraisers charged with developing blended gifts, bequests, charitable trusts, charitable gift annuities, and other gifts that have a future impact on the bottom line. In this session, task force chair Joe Bull reports on connections between metrics and fundraising success.
There is a lot of uncertainty and corresponding concern on how Congress and IRS will change the face of philanthropy in 2017 and going forward. The House W&M has asked charities to justify why they need a charitable income tax deduction. President-Elect Trump and the House GOP have recommended eliminating the estate tax, even on wealthy estates. The Senate Finance Committee is concerned about the size of and need for endowments. IRS is challenging charitable organizations on the basis of their political belief. The speaker will address these and other major issues, and assess the impact of future events on charities and the charitable planner.
Track speakers & sessions will be posted soon!
