Planned Giving Seminar for Nonprofits at Swan Lake
Marshall County Community Foundation Hosts
"Building a Better Future" Event May 22
Nonprofit organizations are faced with a world where doing more with less is an everyday occurrence. Planned giving is often an overlooked opportunity to connect loyal supporters with a way to build toward a brighter future. Just one planned gift could feed more families, fund more arts programs, save more animals, shelter more homeless people or, quite simply, make a nonprofit mission a reality. The good news is, planned gifts are appropriate for donors of all means, and it's easier than most people might think to get started.
The Marshall County Community Foundation (MCCF) will host nonprofit organizations across the region at Swan Lake Resort, 5203 Plymouth LaPorte Trail, Plymouth, IN, on Thursday, May 22, from 3-4:30 pm. Anyone interested in learning more about creating lasting legacies and secure revenue streams for nonprofits is invited to attend.
