How Best to Approach Philanthropy with Clients

Date: Thursday, November 8, 2018
Time: 11:30am - 1:00pm
Location: Minnehaha Country Club
Speaker: Marc Littlecott


This presentation integrates many of the principals and practices taught to advisors through the CAP® course, primarily differentiating the typical “Charity Conversation” from the more effective, and client-friendly “Impact Conversation”.  For estate planners who understand and feel comfortable with this kind of planning approach, the results and degree of client satisfaction can be dramatic – not to mention impactful for the local community.


Registration will close at 5 pm on Thursday, November 1st.  Please register if you will attend to ensure we have an accurate lunch count.  As a note....the annual turkey dinner with all of the trimmings will be served!  Thank you!
