Planned Giving Survey

The low-cost solution for identifying existing and potential planned gifts

Our planned giving survey is powered by 27 years of relationship-first planned giving experience. We have spoken to over 300,000 donors in the past 7 years, so we know how they think and what they want from the nonprofits they support. We have strategically designed our planned giving survey to increase completion rates, deepen the relationship with your donors, and efficiently extract vital information. Unlike other surveys, we don’t waste time with redundant or obvious questions, and our surveys can be completed in under 3 minutes. That’s faster than you can finish your morning coffee.

40% of planned giving donors surveyed learned about planned giving from a nonprofit organization.

We intentionally designed this survey to be a low-cost, high-impact product so that we can provide your organization with key insights from your donors. We understand that you may not always have the time and resources to implement a full planned giving program, but that shouldn’t mean that you cannot continue the planned giving conversation with your donors. Our planned giving survey is a key touch point in the planned giving journey, without bogging down your team or budget.
