Building and Sustaining the Feminist Future: Planned Giving

Poster Presentation

Undergraduate Student: Dartricia Rollins

Faculty Mentor: Darlene Xiomara Rodriguez-Schafer

Planned giving, also known as legacy giving, are estate contributions given to a nonprofit organization by a donor. Most planned gifts come from longtime donors that want to see the organization remain healthy after their passing. Planned gifts are defined as “a contribution that is arranged in the present and allocated at a future date” (Planned Gifts: The Introductory Guide, n.d.). Planned giving is a ‘growing intergenerational transfer’ James, forthcoming; Radcliff, 2002 (as cited in Russell, Lauderdale & Robb 2009). Planned gifts are important for the sustainability of organizations, but not all organizations know how to implement this resource diversification strategy.

The purpose of this deliverable is to create a planned giving program for Charis Circle. Charis Circle, the nonprofit programming arm of Charis books and more has been providing community space and education to the community for more than forty years. “Together with Charis Books, the nation's oldest feminist bookstore, Charis Circle encourages the expression of diverse and marginalized voices, fosters sustainable feminist communities, and works for social justice.” This organization spans three generations, therefore an intergenerational approach was necessary. A planned giving program and manual was created for both the board of directors and the potential donors. It is important to sustain the future of Charis Circle and a planned giving program will give Charis Circle an opportunity to have meaningful conversations with their donors about how their legacy can continue to build the feminist future.
