Donor Education Tools

Donors can benefit from checklists, and especially visual flowcharts, just as much as a gift planner.  Information can be overwhelming for donors, leading them to make the wrong decision because they did not invest the time or energy to learn everything they needed to about the issue. 

Respond to donor questions faster

Some of the best opportunities to create value for donors come from quickly addressing their challenges in times of need – the unscheduled client call with what “should” be a straightforward planning question that has significant consequences.  But if the planner is preoccupied or distracted, they may not give the most thorough answer or not remember to ask the appropriate probing questions.

Uncover more gift planning opportunities

Sometimes, gift planners may not connect the dots between two seemingly separate planning issues.  In reality, many planning issues are interconnected, and advice in one area can open discussions in other areas.

A quick introduction to a new concept

Using a checklist or flowchart before researching a gift planning issue is akin to providing a 10,000-foot overview. 

Avoid careless errors

Some of the best opportunities to create value for donors come from quickly addressing their challenges in times of need – the unscheduled client call with what “should” be a straightforward planning question that has significant consequences.  But if the planner is preoccupied or distracted, they may not give the most thorough answer or not remember to ask the appropriate probing questions.

Study tool

For new gift planners working toward their CFP, CAP, or other certifications, checklists and especially visual flowcharts can be helpful study tools to help make a concept “stick” and easy to recall.  In these cases, flowcharts excel due to their ability to illustrate not just the rules but also the nuances and exceptions associated with the rules in a visual format most conducive to most visual learners.
