Keynote Presentation:

Where Do We Go From Here?

The most extensive changes in the nation’s tax laws in 30 years will usher in broad-reaching changes in our society, and charitable giving will be no exception. These changes are occurring simultaneously with dramatic shifts in the demographics of the U. S. population. This presentation will examine how these developments, coupled with related changes in the economy, will impact how charitable gifts are made now and in the future. The basic motivations for giving will doubtless remain the same, but we can expect significant changes in what people choose to give, when the gifts are made and how they are structured.

Robert F. Sharpe, Jr. is Chairman of Sharpe Group, which consults nationwide with leading educational, health, social service and religious organizations and institutions in implementing their major and planned gift development efforts.

With offices in Memphis, Washington D.C., Atlanta and San Francisco, Sharpe Group has worked with over 10,000 nonprofits nationwide during its 54-year history. Robert is a frequent speaker for professional gatherings nationwide, including the National Conference on Philanthropic Planning, the American Bankers Association Wealth Management and Trust Conference, the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) National Conference, the American Institute of CPAs Nonprofit Conference, the International Fundraising Congress, the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy Advanced Planned Giving Institute, Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) National Conference, CASE Advanced Planned Giving Conference and others.
