Gift Annuity NOW was developed and created on the vision and passion to allow every nonprofit organization in the country, no matter of size or mission, to be able to offer the benefits of a Gift Annuity to its donors, while at the same time, maximizing CASH gifts.
Rick is the creator of Gift Annuity NOW. Rick has consulted and helped implement the Gift Annuity NOW process in nonprofits from Higher Education, to Healthcare to Faith-Based Institutions throughout the country since 2007, resulting in millions of dollars in Charitable Gifts. Since then, the creation of the Gift Annuity NOW software was born, in order to offer more of an impact to nonprofit organizations, help the nonprofit reach more donors and help raise more CASH gifts.
Rick’s passion for Philanthropy and Major Gifts is the driving force in enhancing the nonprofit-donor relationship. Rick is a dynamic and engaging speaker on nonprofit planned giving and major gift topics, conducting over 100 national presentations on an annual basis. Combining traditional thought with creativity and innovation, is what separates Rick from other nonprofit experts.
