My buddy Simon Scriver (rockstar nonprofit consultant extraordinaire from Ireland) has this fabulous podcast called Simon Scriver’s Amazingly Ultimate Fundraising Superstar Podcast – just rolls off your tongue, doesn’t it?!
It’s nothing like any other podcast because he just has an unscripted conversation with amazing fundraisers and touches on all kinds of topics. Perhaps, the bit I appreciate the most is that it isn’t scripted and it feels genuine – not like many stiff, vanilla, traditional podcasts out there!
Anyway, last week he invited me for a casual chat about the state of legacy giving around the globe. We talked about many things, namely how organizations have missions that require a long-term vision yet we have planning and budget cycles that are short-term. Not surprisingly, this means that organizations shy away from investing in legacy giving, despite the fact that it is a high return, low-investment fundraising approach.
So, if you want to hear the whole thing, head over to:
