Regional Member Breakfast - Michigan

Article Type: News

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Regional Member Breakfast on Thursday, February 16.  A special "thank you" goes to Christian Reformed Church in North America for hosting this breakfast at their headquarters in Grand Rapids, MI.

James Bakke, our Executive Director, lead a discussion on how to begin effective Planned Giving communications.  Jim reminded us of the 3 big opportunities when it comes to Planned Gifts:

  • make a gift in your Will
  • gifts that provide an income for life
  • gifts of non-cash assets

He challenged us to go back to our offices and make a list of our donors who fit in the following categories:

  • Donors 65 and over
  • Donors with no children
  • Faithful, consistent donors over time
  • Donors who are business owners
