What People Are Saying

We are proud to have had the following organizations, among many others, as part our planned giving webinars:

"I am very glad I went through the program. I actually hope to do it again when I am ready for another campaign. Overall, I think I have a good plan. The problem I have is in trying to make the plan do too many things, and Crescendo helped me focus, which in the future will allow me to feel more targeted in our marketing efforts. The program helped me gain more knowledge of how to utilize the resources in GiftLegacy. Knowing what they are is one thing, but knowing how to use them effectively is another."

"Participating in the CresBequest program was a great way to educate us on the development of a custom campaign. The opening webinar provided us with a great starting point and an idea of what we should be focusing on while in planning stages. The three one-on-one calls that followed allowed for more personalized planning and strategy specific to our institution, and the final webinar brought it all together. It was nice to hear and see what the other institutions in our group came up with. This format was able to provide us with enough information to set up a customized marketing campaign."
