CGP Emerging Professionals Webinar: 
Final Destination: Estate Administration

In gift planning, much focus is placed on acquiring the deferred gift commitments. After the donor passes away and the process to receive these gifts begins, how should you handle the estate administration for your organization? In this webinar, we’ll discuss best practices for dealing with realized bequests, beneficiary designations, annuities and trusts. A panel will discuss how these situations have played out in their organizations and offer tips on how to navigate the process.
