Learn, Listen and Ask for Opportunities in Gifts

Presented by Scott Thomas, Founder and CEO of Stewardship Matters

We all need to get better at the value we provide others.  In this program we will focus on ways we can learn more financial information that strategically opens up more money conversations that few others are asking.  Including conversations over the trillions of dollars residing in tax deferred or qualified retirement accounts.  How knowing a little more and asking the right questions can open up more gifts to donors' favorite charities - including yours!
