Morning Session

Effective Cultivation Techniques

Anne Melvin, Director of Training and Education, Harvard University

Effective, strategic cultivation distinguishes a solid fundraiser from an outstanding performer. Are these skills firmly in your wheelhouse? Moves management is essential to moving a prospect from mildly interested to wildly supportive, but what’s the secret? There are many, and in this session, we will explore the multiplicity of things you can do to engage and inspire your prospect. From creative engagement moves, to asking probing questions that get at the heart of what gets your prospect’s juices flowing, this session will help you expand your repertoire of effective donor cultivation strategies.   

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Luncheon Presentation

Tax Planning and Charitable Giving After the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Suma V. Nair, Director, Goulston & Storrs PC


It has been over a year since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act came into effect, and the SECURE Act is making its way through the Senate after having been overwhelmingly approved in a bi-partisan vote in the House.  This session will provide an overview of the effect of the most recent tax reforms (so far as we have seen) on charitable giving and tax planning, and some thoughts on how the SECURE Act, or legislation like it, could further affect these areas.




Registration includes your choice of sessions and lunch, if selected. Payment is due upon registration via a credit card.
