The Office of Planned Giving offers a multi-tiered, donor-centered approach, which allows individuals to make significant contributions. Duties and assignments include, but are not limited to identifying, cultivating, soliciting and stewarding prospects and donors capable of gifts of $500,000 or more, particularly those of a deferred or more complex nature as well as supporting comparable efforts of key internal partners.
