San Diego Planned Giving Partnership Luncheon

Helping Fundraisers Find Large Charitable Gifts from Seldom Used IRD Assets

Fundraisers will learn about "Income in Respect of Decedent Assets" (IRD), and why they are often deemed "hard" to utilize during lifetime, and difficult to leave to family. This presentation will provide tools to identify opportunities with donors, and provide case studies of real-life scenarios that led to large gifts of IRD assets to charities. We will cover planning with Pension Plans, Annuities, IRAs, and Gifts of Existing Life Insurance to charity.

Presented by:
John Kraemer, CSPG
