“America is a Given Place”

February 3, 2022

Ron Brown

Where do charitable gift planners, fund raisers, trust officers, attorneys and financial advisors turn for knowledge of events that shape their work today? In a convenient new webinar entitled America is a Given Place you will learn the deepest original foundations of gift planning in the U.S. by seeing major events, appreciating important innovations, and re-enacting landmark national debates and resulting legislation. Now you can see how gift planning through charitable bequests, trusts, annuities, and gifts of complex assets began with America’s first colonists, flourished in the newborn United States, and took shape through important Supreme Court decisions, federal legislation, and the founding of the American Council on Gift Annuities and the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners.

Ron Brown has been a charitable gift planner for 40 years, including 15 years as director of gift planning at Princeton University, his alma mater. The Philanthropic Planning Group of Greater New York presented him with an award for distinguished service in 2019. He became a professional historian more than 30 years ago while serving as a Reservist with the US Naval Historical Center, where he received two Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals for historical writing and research. Ron wrote A History of Charitable Gift Planning (Amazon 2017). He adds content from time to time on his website at www.giftplanninghistory.org and has written many articles for Planned Giving Today, Planned Giving Design Center, Taxwise Giving and other publications. He is a frequent presenter at gift planning meetings and conferences.
