  • Location: Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, Coram Street, London, WC1N 1HT
  • Date: 12 Feb 2019

Legacies provide 19% of all hospice income but in these uncertain times can we continue to rely on this source of funds?

This one day conference will examine all aspects of legacy giving, from creating the right internal environment for legacy discussions, to devising a marketing campaign.

The conference begins by examining future trends in legacy giving and how things could change over the next ten years. The remaining plenary sessions  will cover a range of topics to ensure hospices can maximise their income from legacies. Sessions include managing key relationships with probate practitioners to be able to access funds more quickly, as well as empowering staff to have difficult conversations about legacies with families and patients. 

All delegates will be able to attend two workshops. To find out more download the draft programme and the workshop details. Don't forget to choose your workshops at conference when booking.

As a result of attending this conference delegates will:

• be able to produce a rationale for investing in this income stream
• understand that ‘legacy marketing’ is part of, but not the whole of, a hospice’s approach to legacy fundraising
• have developed techniques to talk about legacy fundraising to all hospice staff

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at Fundraising leads, CEOs and Trustees, in addition to those actively involved in legacy fundraising.
