Increase your League's fundraising through direct marketing, planned giving, donor cultivation and more.

Fundraising In Depth

Planned Giving is a commitment from a donor to an organization when generally given at the time of the donor’s passing. 

As a League leader, you occasionally face questions about the rules that govern Leagues — what Leagues can do and what they can’t. We often receive similar questions at the national office. In order to shed light on the subject, we asked a lawyer specializing in nonprofits for detailed guidance. We combined the advice he gave us with information from IRS publications and other sources to produce a series of frequently asked questions and answers (FAQ). We are including those FAQs that relate most directly to the work of membership and leadership development here.  Please feel free to share this document with other members of your board, including your treasurer.
