Presented by: 
Lindsay Gilbert

Session Description: 

Tribute giving not only creates a meaningful legacy for donors, but can also achieve significant fund development goals. Through a collaborative process with fund development and launch of an innovative recognition program, we are now telling stories and sharing legacies about the honoree, while taking donor engagement to the next level. I would like to share with other donor relations professionals the critical interactions and recognition systems we can all implement to see our donor engagement and tribute-giving programs soar.
