Leave a Message Siouxland is a local awareness campaign to educate the public about the impact of planned giving. The group is currently recruiting nonprofit organizations to become members of the effort, and will ultimately, provide a searchable resource for financial and legal professionals to refer clients to when deciding whether to make a planned gift.  The group is working in tandem with other planned giving efforts across Siouxland as a resource for our community.

Learning Objectives of this Presentation:

  • Why Leave a Message began the effort.
  • How we can bring people together and share the message.
  • Goals for the awareness campaign for 2016 and beyond.
