Program Description

Program Details

Teddy Roosevelt has been quoted saying, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

Charitable giving gives us an opportunity to do what we can by investing in the nonprofits and communities that share our values and vision for the future. While many Americans give to nonprofits during their lifetime, a much smaller number include giving as part of their estate plans.

Join us for this educational session to learn more about the planned giving opportunities that can help donors achieve their charitable, financial, and estate planning goals. Attendees will leave this session inspired by the generosity of other Iowans and with the tools they need to consider how charitable giving can become a part of their legacy.

Presented by Joe Sorenson, CAP® Vice President of Affiliate Relations Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines, and Liz Zuercher, Executive Director of the Story County Community Foundation.
