We enter 2018 to find markets reaching new heights and a new tax law that is less than a month old. How will all of this affect not-for-profits and their donors? Join us on February 8th for a timely discussion featuring experts from UMB Bank’s private and institutional asset management division who will present a forecast for the economy for the upcoming year and its effect on your organization and donors, as well as a discussion of the expected impact of the new tax law on charitable giving. In addition, Mr. Ladd and Mr. Calmer will share steps they are taking now for the endowments they manage and the high net worth donors they serve. These topics will appeal not only to development and planned giving professionals, but also to Board Members, Executive Directors, and other organization executives as well.
This session has been approved for 1.0 CFRE Continuing Education Point and 1.2 CLE credit hours from The Missouri Bar.
