AFP DC, Washington D.C. Metro Area Chapter: AFP Onsite Webinar & Panel Discussion: How to Take Your Legacy Program from Zero to Success!

August 21, 2017

Legacy gifts can be life changing events – for the donors and also for the recipients. How do you launch a successful planned giving program and grow it to a valuable fundraising channel for your organization? Join us to watch AFP’s webinar on “I Wish I'd Thought of That Ten Years Ago! Launching a Successful Legacy Program” presented by Ligia Peña, CFRE, Global Legacy Manager at Greenpeace International. And then learn tips and advice from our expert panelists about how to grow a program that produces substantial legacy gifts.  

Join us for this onsite webinar to learn about the value of starting—and growing—a legacy program. We will watch AFP’s pre-recorded webinar together, at the conclusion we’ll have an interactive conversation and Q&A with local, successful professional fundraisers:


  • Betsy Wason, CFRE, Vice President for Development, Physicians Committee


  • Tim Enstice, Senior Director of International Gift Planning, PETA Foundation
  • Anna Simmonds, Director of Bequests and Annuities, The Nature Conservancy
  • William Brown, Senior Director of Philanthropy, Physicians Committee

Our panelists will answer your questions, address common challenges for growing a legacy program, and provide real-life examples of what works (and what doesn’t!). Come prepared for a lively, interactive session that will provide practical takeaways for every level of fundraising experience.
