Becoming an Honorary Treasurer

- Organising regular meetings with
keynote speakers and networking opportunities
- Providing a source of helpful information through updates and briefings
- Carrying out research and producing relevant publications and
- Occasionally lobbying on behalf of Treasurers

Legacies - the barriers, threats and potential
Legacies provide almost £2 billion a year for charities. But the future holds challenges: there is an ageing population which will negatively affect values, whilst about 35% of charity stakeholders already have charities in their Will so numbers will increase. But how can an investment in legacies be evaluated and measured? The marketplace is more volatile than ever before which brings risks and “false measurements” based on past performance. This presentation will discuss the dangers and opportunities in terms of investment and KPIs and suggest challenging solutions.
With Richard Radcliffe and Mark Astarita
