Legacy Fundraising Conference
An estimated 3-9% drop in legacy income this year means charities must recruit new donors and retain their current ones to minimize this loss. This can only happen if your messaging, campaign performance and stewardship are stronger than ever. At this conference, Heads of Legacies and Senior Legacy marketers will look at how to make the most out of a smaller budget, the impact of CV-19 on messaging and how to adapt stewardship to keep current and future donors engaged.
