Press release submitted by Nicole Freise|
The Illowa Partnership for Philanthropic Planning released findings of its 2009 Planned Giving Survey. The annual survey seeks to demonstrate the importance of planned giving and to subsequently create a report that allows local nonprofit organizations to evaluate their success in planned giving.
Of the survey respondents, 79% encourage planned giving. From 2005 to 2009 there was no decrease in the number of organizations who encouraged planned gifts; several continue to use plans they had in place.
Results show that organizations with planned giving programs, received gifts – 74% of organizations that actively encouraged planned gifts, received gifts in 2008.
At the time of the survey, 1,396 known expectancies were reported. Modest estimates value these expectancies at $316,771,525 when the gifts mature. The value of total expectancies is significantly larger as some organizations were not able to speculate at the time the survey was conducted.
Planned giving programs are imperative to the future success of nonprofits. The results of the survey are meant to spur every nonprofit to strive for excellence in planned giving, and benefit from the generosity of the community.
