20 You won’t reach full potential without the Conference Executive support. The Conference Executive approves the budget/financial support for the program The board sets priorities for the CEO and through planning, for the staff The board sets and populates the committees. Why the Executive Committee is Important to Your Success

21 The chair sets the agenda for board meetings and determine what is reported to the board. The board is your link to the community – donors will see the organization and its needs through the board’s eyes. The board is a group of potential donors! Why the Executive Committee is Important to Your Success

22  Each board member has his or her own idea about “planned giving”. ◦ Some are positive. ◦ Some are negative.  Most members measure success by the dollars coming through the door in that year.  The economy is driving greater needs – and creating greater concerns – than usual. ◦ Donor may quit giving or give less. ◦ With the stock markets up and down, interest rates up or down, inflation and donors have less to give. ◦ Gas prices, food prices, inflation in general….creating lots of pressures. Your Challenges In Engaging the Executive Committee

23 Planned giving concepts are complicated. Planned gifts are deferred – how could revocable gifts that might come in ten years from now be important? Your Challenges in Engaging the Executive Committee

Do you have programs you would like to fund – but don’t have the resources? Do you anticipate needs for future programs? Do you face increasing competition for funds? Are you losing donors through attrition? Tips for Education

29 Expanding a development program takes more staff and volunteer support than an annual giving program: Planned gifts involve non-cash gifts – many of which may have liability Planned gifts may require additional time and expertise Planned gifts require patience Planned gifts involve the organization’s best donors Everyone Has a Role in the Success of the Program – Especially the Executive Committee
