Educate to Give...Donor Education for Effective Giving 

Would your nonprofit organization like to increase donations? Educate to Give may be able to provide a solution for growing your planned giving and legacy gifts.

What is Educate to Give?

Educate to Give is a gift of education for your donors that teaches effective philanthropic, planned giving, and tax-avoidance strategies.

Who is Educate to Give for?

Nonprofits who want to equip donors with more efficient ways to give.

How does Educate to Give work?

A nonprofit organization offers donors a two-part gift of education:

  • One educational meeting led by Syverson Strege on philanthropic and tax-avoidance strategies
  • Individual one-hour confidential consultation with a Syverson Strege professional

Because Educate to Give is purely educational, donors will not be pressured to buy any products. Educate to Give is a leave-your-checkbook-behind meeting and consultation. Syverson Strege offers an education culture, not a sales culture.

Why does Syverson Strege offer Educate to Give?
