Ellsworth presents webinar: Creating an expression of donor intent
Date Published: May 16, 2011
The legal documents that establish a family foundation, charitable trust, donor advised fund or planned gift usually do not begin to reflect the richness of personal history, values and visions that lie behind the voluntary act of generosity. Chances are those motivations and back stories are not only very interesting, but may be largely unknown or misunderstood by successors, who often struggle to find consensus, set direction and fulfill their responsibilities in the absence of an appreciation of the deepest purposes of the instrument.
Advisors in Philanthropy, a network of diverse professional advisors, hosted a webinar “Why a Mission Statement Isn’t Enough: Creating an Expression of Donor Intent” on Tuesday, May 17th at 3:00pm EST. This webinar featured TPI Senior Philanthropy Advisor, Amy Zell Ellsworth and Personal Legacy Advisors Founder, Susan Turnbull, co-authors of Across Generations: A 5-Step Guide to creating an Expression of Donor Intent.
