|At United Midcoast Charities, we hope that all local nonprofits will increase their financial sustainability over time. In the process, donors may offer non-cash and deferred gifts for the first time. This is exciting!
However, all gifts are not equal in their financial value to your organization, nor are they equal in value and impact from one nonprofit to the next. A gift acceptance policy that clearly sets forth your organizational position on non-cash and deferred gifts not only provides you with a roadmap to these choices, but also places the responsibility of decision-making squarely with the board of directors, where it belongs. Investment and spending policies define the stewardship of those gifts to support your mission and donor intent.
Please join us for a workshop on the hows and whys of developing your gift acceptance and investment policies with experienced gift planners Abe Dugal and Sarah Ruef-Lindquist. We are delighted to offer this opportunity to board members and executives who have a hand in developing organizational polices. Please use this link to register, or call UMC at 236-2299 with any further questions.
