Gift Planner Profile 8

The National Association of Charitable Gift Planners invites you to participate in the eighth Gift Planner Profile survey (GPP8). Since 1991, this survey has tracked professional characteristics and trends in the gift planning community. The results help gift planners compare their work environments and salaries to peers. Salary reports also help managers make hiring decisions and set appropriate performance and compensation expectations.

The survey will be open through March 17. Click below if you are interested in receiving an invitation to participate.

Lessons from Research: Leaving a Bequest

This study shows strategic distribution of a donor’s estate can achieve generativity: extending the self forward in time after bodily death and providing the legator with a form of symbolic immortality. Donors may link their identity through gifts to friends and family as well as to charitable organizations and attempt to balance these disposition decisions to create an overall positive position of the giver.
