Wednesday, August 26, 2020 Luncheon

Guest Speakers: Kent Weimer, Parkland Foundation
Luncheon Program:

Don't Ice Skate Out on the Pond Alone, Know Before You Go

Sometimes gifts and grants, while wonderful opportunities, present legal and ethical dilemmas with very considered decisions to be made. Kent Weimer will share with us his up close and personal real life stories from the donation trenches, and include practical, ethical considerations that ultimately impact an organization's operating procedures and fundraising philosophies. 

Register Online Here. Online registration closes on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 at 10 PM. Online registration accepts credit cards only.

Kent Weimer has been Director of Trusts, Estates and Gift Planning for the Parkland Foundation since 2012, and has spent over 30 years in nonprofit management and development. Along the way, he has accumulated a host of best practices gleaned from first hand experiences at institutions that include Lake Forest College and the world renowned Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. A graduate of the University of Montana, Kent is a Board Member and Chair Elect of the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners and Past President of the Dallas Council of Charitable Gift Planners.
