For many charities, legacy gifts are a vital part of their fundraising mix, with their importance set to grow even further in forthcoming years. However, in these challenging times, how should charities adapt their existing approaches? This course will consider how to redevelop a legacy fundraising strategy to take account of unforeseen events, alongside zeroing in on key strategic elements which are likely to be particularly important in forthcoming months and years.

Who should attend?

You’re likely to have some experience in legacy fundraising and probably already have a strategy in place. You want to consider how to redevelop your approach in the current circumstances.

Benefits for you and your organisation

As someone with experience in legacy fundraising, you’ll already know how important this income stream currently is for charities, and how important it’s likely to be in the future. This course will help you to feel confident that you’re adapting your legacy fundraising appropriately for current circumstances and, ultimately, help you to maintain and eventually grow your legacy income.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

- Adapt your strategy when unforeseen circumstances occur

- Focus on the most critical elements of your legacy fundraising strategy

- Influence internally to keep legacies on the agenda
