"All You Really Need to Know About Planned Giving You Learned in Kindergarten"

   Meryl R. Cosentino, J.D.

   Senior Director of Gift Planning

   Stony Brook University

Cosentino's entertaining presentation shows how what we learned in kindergarten – our ABCs, counting, making play dates – can be applied to your career as a planned giving officer and increase legacy support for your charity. Cosentino will show how mastering these lessons has enabled her to raise more than $16 million in new bequest intentions during her five years at Stony Brook University.

Meryl has more than 30 years of estate and gift planning experience. She is currently serving on the board of the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (NACGP) and this year was selected as the Conference chair-elect for the CGP National Conference to be held in Chicago in October 2020.
