FUND 3218 - Planned Giving

Fundraising Part-time Studies Course

School of Business + Media

BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

Planned giving typically provides organizations with their most valuable gifts, but development staff are often concerned about the level of technical knowledge needed. This course exposes the myth that the fundraiser needs to be a legal or accounting expert, and gives you the tools to quickly and easily implement your own planned giving program. You will learn about different planned giving vehicles such as bequests and life insurance; how to market the program and find donors; how to ask for and administer planned gifts; and how to develop donor relationships for maximum impact to your organization and the donors’ philanthropic goals.
