In this interactive inspiration session, Elsbeth Takkenberg takes you through the donor process to create a will with a good cause in. You will be challenged to create a legacy program based on the donor and not (only) on the well-known fundraising KPIs. Elsbeth does this based on ten moments in the donor’s thought process where you have a chance or can screw up with your potential testator. The key question is how your charity can better respond to what actually motivates people to leave your cause. The guest speaker will be announced soon.
