Praise for The Power of Legacy and Planned Gifts

"Kevin Johnson has done a great job making clear the process and the implications of a bequest to a charity. A nonprofit's workers and its donors will be well served in reading this book."
- Bill Gates, Sr. , author, Showing Up for Life

"Regardless of the size, vintage, or mission of your organization, you can use this book. If this is the part of fundraising you have been avoiding, Kevin's sensible advice can get your team started and get results sooner than you think."
- Joan Flanagan , fundraiser, Center for New Community, and author, Successful Fundraising

"Bequests are the key for small and medium-sized charities to survive and thrive. Kevin clearly shows how board and staff can easily develop the comfort and confidence to build effective relations with donors, and help them tell their stories and express their deepest values through bequests. Oh, that we all had this book years ago!"
- Roger Ellison , vice president for planned giving, West Texas Rehabilitation Center Foundation

"Kevin's insights into donor motivation and the richness of our story have resulted in a substantial increase in planned gifts to our organization."
