The 2018- 2019 Legacy Society and Development Specialist at TOMAGWA clinic will be further expanding the planned giving membership program developed and implemented by the first 2 VISTAs. This VISTA member will be updating marketing materials used for the program, planning events for Legacy Society members, attending networking events/meetings to expand the clinic’s planned giving resources, and ultimately increasing funds to the clinic to expand services. As the final placement for the planned giving project at TOMAGWA, the VISTA will also research the best practices to ensure that the Legacy Society sustains itself after they leave, transferring capacity to other clinic volunteers and staff members.
