Title of Presentation 1
Plannual Giving--A New Framework for Planned Giving Marketing
Presentation Description
The future of planned giving marketing is integration, not separation. The idea behind "Plannual Giving" is that by identifying ways to hybridize the marketing mix of the annual and planned giving efforts, so that there is a blend of messages combining both annual support and legacy gifts in the same communication vehicles, organizations are able to reach more effectively the most likely planned giving donor – the loyal annual donor. The "Plannual Giving" model will help development leaders think about their constituents with a wider prism and optimize existing resources to serve both purposes.
