Party On The Porch
Tuesday, June 27, 4:30-6:30 PM
– University Club, 945 N Main St., Rockford
If you’ve worked in planned giving for long enough, you know that things don’t always go according to the plan. Perhaps you worked with a donor to create a charitable lead trust in 2007, funded it with real estate and then the real estate market crashed. What did you do? Enjoy good discussion, tasty hors d’oeuvres, cold beverages (cash bar available) and a lovely river view at informal table discussions about what to do in situations like this and how to avoid them. This is a great time to share stories, learn from each other’s experiences and network.

Register via email to:  $18 per person at the door or in advance to NIPGC, P.O. Box 6764, Rockford, IL 61125-1764. Reservations by June 23, please.

Thank you corporate sponsors!
