North Texas Chapter Partnership for Philanthropic Planning
The Partnership for Philanthropic Planning is the national organization for people and organizations that work together to make charitable giving most meaningful.
The North Texas Chapter of the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning is the professional association of people in the Dallas metropolitan and North Texas area whose work involves developing, structuring, and administering planned gifts, and the allied professionals with whom they work.
Our members include fundraisers, planned and major gifts officers, consultants, attorneys, accountants, financial planning professionals, insurance professionals, donor advisors, and trust officers.
Our luncheon programs and informal meetings provide a forum to share expertise, ideas and knowledge. The annual National Conference on Philanthropic Planning brings together speakers from all disciplines involved in the planning process to share their expertise.

Location: Haynes and Boone, LLP

RESERVATION DEADLINE: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 2014
Many development professionals think that planned giving is just like any other form of fundraising or tax planning; however, new studies using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) show just how differently the brain reacts to bequest decisions. Dr. Russell James, author of the world’s first published peer-reviewed research examining charitable bequest decision-making using fMRI, will review his latest findings and present a new model of the deep processes involved in bequest decision-making. He will detail a wide range of practical applications for planned giving officers and advisors that will help you improve your communications regarding planned giving.
Attendees are encouraged to park in nearby public parking lots.
