Ten Tips for Soliciting Planned Gifts from Women

 Women’s ability to contribute and make a lasting impact in philanthropy is often overlooked and under-utilized. In truth, women are driving many of the philanthropic decisions in this country. Research tells us that women behave differently than men in their philanthropic giving. We cannot assume what works for men will be applicable to women. This session will outline key considerations for success when soliciting planned gifts from women, including understanding the differences between men and women donors, understanding key motivators for women donors, and how to steward and recognize women’s gifts.
