  3. 3. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 3 What is Planned Giving A method of charitable giving that involves the donorʼs consideration of their retirement plan and family estate plan, and Usually (not always) accrues cash to a non-profit at the donorʼs death
  4. 4. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 4 Why Is Planned Giving Important • Build endowment • Help through next recession • Lifetime relationships • Welcome those with modest incomes • Your competitors are asking
  5. 5. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 5 How is Planned Giving Done • Revocable gifts (your donors can take them back) -- very valuable to your program -- Charitable bequests -- Living trusts -- Beneficiary designations • Irrevocable gifts
  6. 6. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 6 Charitable Bequests • Not hard to do • Except, unlikely youʼll be told • Xcellent for people of modest means • Tax deduction for estate doesnʼt matter • Gain cash, property, anything of value • Even though revocable, valuable • Not necessarily small if “residual”
  7. 7. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 7 Living Trusts • Check your checks “revocable living trust” “living trust” “revocable trust” “trustee” • Help donor make you remainder beneficiary • A way to avoid probate • Received at death • I see easy transfer to you • True, no deduction doesnʼt matter • You get trust remainder quickly
  8. 8. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 8 Beneficiary Designations • Life Insurance • Retirement plans -- IRA, 401(k), 403(b), Small Employer Pension (SEP), SIMPLE IRA • Commercial annuities • Bank and brokerage accounts • Any asset with a beneficiary designation
  9. 9. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 9 Where We Are • What is Planned Giving • How is Planned Giving done Revocable gifts Irrevocable gifts pay life income
  10. 10. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 10 Irrevocable Gifts That Pay Life Income Donor donorʼs death nonprofit lifetime income cash, stock, real estate planned gift
  11. 11. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 11 The Life Income Gifts (a/k/a love those acronyms) • Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust (CRAT) -- fixed income for life • Charitable Remainder Unitrust (CRUT) -- variable income for life • Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) -- fixed income for life -- lower minimum gift than charitable trusts
  12. 12. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 12 Charitable Remainder Trusts • Income tax charitable deduction when trust created • Typical is husband & wife getting income -- “income beneficiaries” • You are remainder beneficiary • One trust can benefit multiple nonprofits -- “Iʼd like to help you but I have other charities I support” -- “You can help us all” • Hard to do for less than $100,000
  13. 13. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 13 Charitable Gift Annuity • Fixed income for life to 2 “annuitants” • Typical is husband and wife • Income tax charitable deduction • At death of annuitant(s), whatʼs left is a gift to one nonprofit • Substantial web of state regulation for approval, especially in CA, NJ & NY
  14. 14. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 14 Where We Are • What is Planned Giving • How is Planned Giving done Revocable gifts Irrevocable gifts pay life income donʼt pay life income
  15. 15. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 15 Irrevocable Gifts That Donʼt Pay Life Income • Life insurance ownership • Retained Life Estate • Charitable Lead Trust
  16. 16. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 16 Life Insurance Ownership- Nonprofit Owns Policy • Charitable deduction -- your donor loves you • An increase in your net assets --cash surrender value -- your CFO loves you
  17. 17. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 17 Retained Life Estate • Not just primary residence • Expiration, then transfer by deed to nonprofit • Wave bye-bye “remainder interest” • Yet retain “life interest” • Or, a/k/a Life Estate • Report upfront, immediate deduction • Keeps donor paying taxes, maintenance, insurance, repairs
  18. 18. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 18 Charitable Lead Trust Model: Donor 2- income for period of years Nonprofit 3- close of trust 1- cash, stock, real estate Lead Trust Heirs

  20. 20. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 20 Who Are The Best Prospects- Where To Look • Board, for leadership gifts • Other current donors • Exclude events & last yearʼs dinner honoree (unless committed)
  21. 21. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 21 Who Are The Best Prospects • Age 60 and over • Consistent donors (they love your work) -- Ignore gift size • Any income & asset level • May need income supplement • Single, female, widowed, heirless (ideal) • Women outlive men; critical to Planned Giving
  22. 22. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 22 This Sickens Me “A few female friends and I have let it be known to some of the nonprofit organizations we support financially that we would like to explore planned giving options that include their charity. None of the three organizations I mentioned this to have followed up with me...my women friends have had similar experiences. And each time I share the story at a fundraising training I collect another example of a woman who has dropped hints, left messages, sent emails or boldly said something about estate planning & planned giving and they've been ignored or forgotten. “The age group I'm referring to is mid-40's to mid-60's. We have disposable income now but will have more to share later. Some of us don't have children to leave our assets to and others of us simply want to leave a legacy gift in addition to anything we'll do for our families.”

  26. 26. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 26 Using Social Media Properties “Social media, done well, strengthens the bond between the nonprofit and its constituents.” (Nonprofits and Social Media Ain't Optional http://www.ventureneer.com)
  27. 27. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 27 Using Social Media Properties That leaves you with: Willing but skeptical novices Fish where the fish are Bait with what they like to eat
  28. 28. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 28 Using Social Media Properties • Concerns about identity theft -- Physical address, every page -- Contact: phone number with name and dept. • Concerns about ease of use -- Make the font larger and have easy page mods -- Make it clear and easy
  29. 29. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 29 Using Social Media Properties The Basics Still Apply -- Strategize & understand -- Listen to communities online & off - health care; finance; taxes;retirement; politics -- Communicate--Try & fail -- Measure --views, hits, followers, downloads, where from, where to; not money
  30. 30. @TonyMartignetti #NextGen10 http://www.mpgadv.com 30 Using Social Media Properties The Big Four Facebook YouTube Twitter LinkedIn (last two probably not big, but their influencers will be there.) Don't forget old-fashioned email
