Frequently Asked Questions
You have questions, and I have answers!
Who's behind Planned Giving Accelerator?
You’ll be working with me, Tony Martignetti. I’ve helped nonprofits raise more than $100 million in planned gifts. For more than two decades, I’ve been the evangelist for Planned Giving – showing scores of small- and mid-size nonprofits how they can build a pipeline of gifts that support long-term financial stability. With the Accelerator, my mission is to help as many nonprofits as possible start Planned Giving programs – in a way that’s easy, accessible, and affordable.
WHAT IS PLANNED GIVING ACCELERATOR?
WHY SHOULD MY NONPROFIT START A PLANNED GIVING PROGRAM?
WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT FOR THE ACCELERATOR?
Our members need only commit on average about one hour per week. During that time, I’ll provide all the expertise, resources, and insights you need to be successful. The Accelerator will include small group sessions, exclusive podcasts and webinars, a private Facebook community, as well as ongoing advice and resources to help you start your program, promote it, have conversations with potential donors, and recognize and steward those who make planned gifts.
WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM OTHER PLANNED GIVING EXPERTS?
I promise to make Planned Giving easy, accessible, and affordable. I like to say, “I’m an attorney but I don’t talk like one.” That’s a good thing because most attorneys who advise nonprofits on Planned Giving make the process much more complicated and confusing than it needs to be. I draw from my decades of experience as an attorney and Planned Giving consultant to simplify and demystify the Planned Giving process.
I see the vast potential for just about any nonprofit to reap the long-term benefits and sustainability that Planned Giving delivers. The Accelerator is an opportunity for your nonprofit to capitalize on a missed opportunity by developing an easy, accessible, and affordable approach to strengthening your organization through Planned Giving.

WHO IS A GOOD FIT FOR PLANNED GIVING ACCELERATOR?
ISN’T PLANNED GIVING TOO COMPLICATED FOR A SMALL- TO MID-SIZE NONPROFIT?
CAN MORE THAN ONE PERSON FROM MY ORGANIZATION PARTICIPATE?
Yes, up to three individuals from your nonprofit can participate. Having more than one person involved can be beneficial for idea sharing and to ensure that the knowledge acquired remains in your organization. While I do look for one person designated as your point person, up to three can join our Accelerator community.
