AFP Greater Wichita National Philanthropy Day
National Philanthropy Day 2017 will be held November 16, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency from 8am-1pm
National Philanthropy Day offers skillbuilding educational sessions in the morning, followed by an awards luncheon honoring philanthropic achievement. You can choose to attend the workshops only, luncheon only, or both.
National Philanthropy Day will begin with morning workshops presented by Bryan Clontz. Bryan is the founder and President of Charitable Solutions, LLC, specializing in noncash asset receipt and liquidation, gift annuity reinsurance brokerage, gift annuity risk management audits, emergency assistance funds and life insurance appraisals/audits. He has given more than 2,000 presentations on charitable gift planning; been published in an international insurance textbook; and written more than two dozen articles in financial services and planned giving journals.
8:00 Check in
8:30 am to 9:30 am “Fundraising Comedy Hour: Painful career lessons learned from 20 years in the trenches”
After a long career in any field, strange things tend to happen creating teachable moments resulting, hopefully, in lessons learned. This comedic jaunt through the always funny topics of death and taxes is designed to help us laugh at our strange profession, generally, and at my wince-inducing personal stories more specifically. If you learn something profound and life-changing in the eight vignettes, however, it will be completely by mistake. My only goal is to break into the elite club of the top 10 fundraising comedians.
9:45 to 10:45 “Planned Giving with a shoe-string staff and a shoe-string budget”
In this session, attendees will learn how to create or enhance a robust planned giving program with no money and in just 2-3 hours per month. Bryan will explain planned giving in simple terms, describes what really motivates donors to give, how to prospect and have the conversation while literally providing a step-by-step action plan for when you get back to the office. Over the last 20 years, more than 3,000 attendees have enjoyed and benefited from this talk and nearly everyone says: “I never thought it could be this easy and for absolutely no money!”
