In this session, Kim will share information and perspective about the impact of Hurricane Harvey on Houston’s nonprofit community, discuss the ways this catastrophe has affected fundraising, and offer specific observations about planned giving in this rapidly changing environment. She will also look to the way previous disasters – from 9/11 to Hurricane Katrina – have affected the nonprofit and planned giving marketplace to understand what is happening in Houston today, and will lead a discussion so that those in attendance can share their experiences as well.
