Planned giving: little understood, little practiced – so much potential

Many Australian fundraisers think ‘planned giving’ is just gifts-in-wills. However, it is so much more.

Lawrence Jackson compares planned giving practices in Australia to the UK and USA and reveals what needs to change in Australia for the true power of planned giving to be unleashed.
