Getting Started with Legacy Fundraising - Online course

For anyone new to legacy fundraising, this course introduces you to gifts in wills fundraising and how to begin an appropriate approach.

One day online course

Online courses take place via Zoom and include a one hour lunch break as well as brief refreshment breaks.

Gifts in wills are predicted to grow dramatically over the next few decades, driven by decisions that people are making now. In this session, we’ll explore who leaves gifts and why, before working through what this means in practice for your organisation. We’ll look at how this knowledge can be translated into compelling legacy messages, and what you should do to ensure that that message is shared widely amongst the people who support you.
