Nuts & Bolts Session
America is a Given Place - History of Planned Giving in America
Sponsored by Dallas Jewish Community Foundation
NOON - 1:00 P.M.
(A social will be held after the meeting - 1:00-1:15 p.m.)
Knowing the history of charitable gift planning is quite useful, even indispensable, for people who encourage or advise donors. Here is a sampler of your benefits: 1) You will understand the principles behind laws, regulation and practices, so you can explain why things work the way they do; 2) History informs your marketing. Stories of realized bequests and trusts are historical narratives! 3) Good stories provide you with insights into how donors, planners, & policymakers saw themselves and their mission, and inspire you to connect more deeply; 4) Historical trends in mortality and investment returns play a fundamental role in your gift design and tax calculations; and 5) History enables you to know yourself and your important role in America’s highly evolved system of philanthropy. The bottom line is: you will be a better-informed, more effective gift planner.
America is a Given Place is based on Ron Brown’s 40 years as a charitable gift planner, including 15 years as a director of gift planning at Princeton University, his alma mater. He served on the boards of the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners and the American Council on Gift Annuities. In 2019, the Philanthropic Planning Group of Greater New York selected him for a distinguished service award. He was trained as a professional historian 30 years ago and has devoted thousands of hours to scholarly research and writing. He published some of the results in A History of Charitable Gift Planning (Amazon 2017).
