Community Foundations Offer Planned Giving Seminars

September 10, 2012

The Avera Holy Family Foundation, Clay County Community Foundation, Iowa Lakes Community College Foundation, Spencer Schools Foundation and Spencer Regional Health Foundation jointly announce two seminars on Planned Giving. 
The seminars are scheduled for Tuesday, October 30, at the Iowa Lakes Community College Estherville Campus, and Wednesday, October 31, at the Spencer Golf and Country Club. The speaker for both opportunities, Johni Hays, is vice president for Thompson and Associates. Hays has extensive experience in the area of planned giving and receives high praise from both professionals and community members. 
From 8-11:30 a.m., Hays will present “Planned Giving and Ethics for Professional Advisors,” a seminar designed to help attorneys, accountants, and professional financial advisors understand the latest developments and ethical issues in gift planning. Hays will also cover charitable planning strategies with tax-heavy assets. This seminar has been approved for three hours of general continuing education credits as well as ethics credits for Iowa (CEU, CLE, and CPE). The cost is $25 per attendee. Coffee and rolls will be provided. Call 800-252-5664 to register by the October 24 deadline. 
Hays’ afternoon session, “Seven Secrets to Enhancing and Protecting Your Wealth,” will take place from 1-3 p.m. and is open to the general public. In this session, Hays will explain how to use strategic retirement and estate planning techniques to maximize assets without unwanted pressure. Attendees will learn how to leave more money for their heirs than they thought possible, allowing them to spend less time worrying about finances and more time enjoying their golden years. This seminar is free and for educational purposes only; there will be no solicitation made of guests.
Johni Hays is a national presence in the field of retirement and estate planning. She is the author of the book Essentials of Annuities and co-author of the book The Tools and Techniques of Charitable Planning. Her many lectures have inspired people to take charge of their financial destinies.
