Wills Week logo

It’s a safe bet there are people among your organization’s loyal supporters who want to make a bequest, a gift through their wills to help advance your organization’s mission.

No matter the budget of your non-profit or size of fundraising staff, you can help make it possible for donors to continue having impact, beyond their lifetimes, on the change they wish to see in their communities.

Wills Week Professional Development sessions are designed to help fundraising professionals at every stage of their practice successfully facilitate and steward giving by donors through their wills.

Join experienced development professionals and a panel of bequest donors for a day-long training on topics including setting up a bequest program at your organization, how to talk with donors about making a gift through a will, and ways to nurture relationships with your organization’s current and prospective bequest donors.
