Hr 1: Stewarding Donors with Dementia

Presenters: Dr. Jolene Hyppa Martin and Robert Hofmann, MA, CFRE

Do you believe you know the warning signs of dementia? Do you know how to effectively communicate with a faithful donor (clients) in a meaningful and ethical way? Too many of our aging donors are experiencing diminished mental capacities – especially the disease of dementia. This session will provide a background of why research among Professional Fundraisers (PF) is resulting in a need for training. The resulting training will empower professionals to work with these donors by recognizing the signs of dementia and implementing communication strategies to steward faithful donors in meaningful and ethical ways.

Hr 2: Family Secrets and Stranger Scams: Preventing and Responding to Financial Exploitation
Presenter: Marit Peterson, J.D.

Financial service providers have particular insight when it comes to financial exploitation; especially as it manifests for their clients. Financial professionals are at the front lines of the fight against fraud and theft. This presentation will discuss warning signs of financial exploitation and what a financial planner can do if she or he suspects a client is being victimized. We'll take a look at some definitions and statistics related to financial exploitation, explore some case studies that illustrate the challenges we face in responding to these crimes, and talk about resources available to all of us in the fight against fraud, theft and other forms of financial exploitation.
