AUGMENT YOUR CONFERENCE EXPERIENCE BY ADDING THIS ONE-DAY COURSE

As global legacy expert Richard Radcliffe states “legacies have little to do with death and dying”. The same is true of this pre-conference learning opportunity.

This day will present a unique chance for CAGP conference attendees to take a deep dive into their own understanding and comfort with death, mortality and ultimately, life. It will provide insight and the practical tools to help in both their professional life, as someone who assists donors to make legacy gifts, and as a human who will someday die. This day-long gathering will push participants outside their comfort zone in creative and thought-provoking ways, in both interactive and self-guided activities and learning sessions.

Join fellow fundraising professionals who moonlight as end-of-life doulas and death educators to focus on death and build your own personalized roadmap to a more intentional life.
