The Kanuga Keynote

The 2023 Kanuga Keynote

Please join us for an enlightening and candid discussion about the hottest topic in planned giving right now – the Secure Act 2.0’s impact on fundraising.

Among the many changes from Secure Act 2.0 (AKA the IRA Legacy Act) is for the first time, your donors can use retirement plan assets to fund life income gifts like Charitable Gift Annuities. This comes at an important time because the American Council on Gift Annuities (ACGA) recently raised rates, making a CGA even more attractive to your donors.

Whether you’re a seasoned planned giving director or just starting out, you’ll be inspired as our experts delve into what this new legislation means for your nonprofit organization, your donors and you.  If you have questions – they have answers!
