9:30 am - 10:00 am Networking

10:00 am - 11:30 am Program and Discussion

Join Rick Macdonald, Clark University’s Director of Planned Giving, for a discussion on planned giving and research. Rick will discuss planned giving vehicles like insurance and gifts of real estate that can help your donors make a bigger impact on your institution than they thought they were capable of making. Please bring your stories of collaboration between research and planned giving to share, or, if you don’t have a dedicated planned giving officer, bring your questions for Rick! Coffee and Irish soda bread will be served. 

Rick Macdonald is Clark University’s Director of Planned Giving. A graduate of UMass Amherst, Rick has served as Director of Business Development for the American Heart Association, Director of Major Gifts and Planned Giving for Bay Path College, and most recently as a Major Gift Officer with the Isenberg School of Management at UMass Amherst. In his spare time, Rick is a strength and performance coach for young athletes, and enjoys volunteering for animal welfare organizations. He is looking forward to getting his boat back in the water and dusting off his golf clubs once the snow melts. 


The program will be held in the Lurie Conference Room of the University Center at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts (http://www.clarku.edu/directions.cfm). The University Center is Building 27 on the Campus Map (Grid 4B, http://www.clarku.edu/campusmap.cfm). As you enter the building from the Campus Square, the conference rooms are to your left. 

Parking: All cars parked in Clark University Parking Areas are required to display a permit. There is a lot available across Main Street from the main campus gate in between St. Peter’s Church and the University Thrift store which does not require a permit (http://goo.gl/maps/4voBM). Some on-street parking is permitted, but please check street signs carefully for parking restrictions.
