    Planned Giving for the Rest of Us

    Lori Sweeney
    October 18, 2018 | 2:30-4:30 pm
    Central Willamette Credit Union
    7101 SW Supra Drive, Albany

    Lori approaches fundraising from a completely donor-centered focus. She believes the fundraiser sets up the donor to make all the choices in their philanthropic journey, from the initial meeting to the ultimate gift. Her coaching is pragmatic and practical—and fun.

    At this workshop, you will receive hands-on, useful information and participate in role-playing experiences related to planned giving. Lori has been described as a “fundraiser’s fundraiser.”

    Her workshops have been described as "accessible, smart, inspiring, and really quite fun." We highly recommend bringing to this presentation anyone from your organization who will be involved in soliciting planned gifts. It will be great training for development staff and board members.

    Lori offers emotionally intelligent coaching tailored for the donor and the development professional. She has more than 30 years’ experience in fundraising, ranging from her alma mater Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, to Claremont McKenna College and Brentwood School in Southern California, to Oregon State and OHSU Foundations, and now with Providence Foundations in Oregon. She has taught fundraising in workshops and in an ongoing certification course at Portland State University, a partnership with the Willamette Valley Development Officers organization.
