"Planned and Major Gift Collaboration: Blended Gifts from Concept to Closure"

Download Handout


Blended Gifts in their simplest forms are a combination of outright and deferred gifts. More generally they may be viewed as something now, something then, something later. This has become one of the hottest topics in gift planning and for good reason: its practice can result in much happier donors and much larger gifts. This presentation will review the essential elements for successful outcomes with blended gifts initiatives. A donor-centered approach, staff collaboration, timing and sequencing are all essential considerations to closing blended gifts. These will be thoroughly explored and then reviewed through audience interactive case studies.

Previously, he served as the executive director of principal and planned gifts at Georgetown University, where he was responsible for overseeing university-wide planned giving efforts resulting in $248 million of planned gift commitments for Georgetown's $1 billion comprehensive campaign. Before arriving at Georgetown in 1995, he spent 11 years in Denver directing the planned giving program for the National Jewish Medical and Research Center.

Comfort is active both nationally and locally in planned giving professional associations.
