Ligia, how much does the program cost?

I know, professional development budgets are always on the chopping block. But, without continuous learning, how will you serve your beneficiaries and donors as they deserve?

 
The truth is, legacy programs have a higher rate of return than any other fundraising approach today. Can you really afford to leave money on the table?
 
The program costs only USD $450 per month (billed in one lump sum) and it includes:
  • 6 1-hour webinars (CFRE credits included)
  • 6 1-hour group coaching sessions (with guest speakers)
  • 6 30-minute individual coaching sessions (to be scheduled by you)
  • Slide decks for every webinar
  • Guest speakers from industry experts from around the globe
  • Tools and templates for you to use and adapt to your needs
  • Articles and latest research on legacy giving and donor behaviour
  • Access to my Fundraising Resources Library where you’ll find papers, slide decks, templates, book reviews, etc. accumulated throughout my years in fundraising  
Considering the average gift in will is approximately USD $37,000, your investment represents just 7.2% of ONE bequest!
