New York, NY, January 27, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- In the current economic climate, supporters of nonprofits may not have discretionary income to donate but they still want to support the causes and organizations they care about. That’s where planning giving comes in. It’s a gift in the future that can maintain donor relationships in the present while ensuring the long-term financial health of the nonprofit.
Ventureneer is offering a free webinar, Planned Giving for Small and Mid-Size Nonprofits, to show board members and executive directors how easy and how important it is to establish a Planned Giving program.
The free webinar will be aired Thursday, February 16, 2012, from 12n - 1 pm ET.
“A Planned Giving program can be set up by any size nonprofit to ensure future funding,” said Geri Stengel, founder of Ventureneer.

He has been building and growing Planned Giving programs for more than 14 years.

Planned Giving for Small and Mid-Size Nonprofits will give board members, executive directors, and development staff a plain-language explanation of how estate and retirement planned gifts help build a nonprofit’s endowment and protects the future of its important work.
