Planned Giving – The Age Ceiling

Recently, we did a large sample national survey of donors in the United States. We asked a wide variety of questions and we will be blogging about some of the donors’ responses. This is our third blog on planned gifts.

Once a donor reaches the age of 75, their likelihood to consider adding a charity is half of what a donor under 75 years is.

Of course, you may have to wait longer to realize the gift. But your likelihood of securing the gift will be higher if you target donors under 75.
