BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A well known advisory service is helping the Boca Raton Children’s Museum prepare for — and handle — its planned giving program.
From our friends at the Children’s Museum:
Ascendant Planned Giving proudly announced today that Florida’s oldest and most treasured children’s museum, the Boca Raton Children’s Museum (www.cmboca.org), has retained their services to guide them with a planned giving program. Ascendant Planned Giving is a philanthropic advisory practice based in South Florida working with individuals, families, charitable organizations, and small businesses helping them assess, plan, and manage their charitable endeavors.

“The Boca Raton Children’s Museum is the most beloved place for young children to expand their minds but they also face the same problems that all small non-profits face, and that’s sustainability,” said Jon Sahn, co-founder of Ascendant Planned Giving. “That is why we will help them create and build the financial sustainability needed to ensure its long term mission.”
The mission of the Boca Raton Children’s Museum is to develop creative and critical thinking skills in children through exposure to the arts and humanities integrated with history and science. It is located at 498 Crawford Boulevard, Boca Raton.
“The bigger non-profits can afford to have planned giving programs and strategies, but most small non-profits are operating for the present. By bringing Ascendant Planned Giving onboard we can start to plan for a brighter future,” said Dr. Denise St. Patrick-Bell, Executive Director for the Boca Raton Children’s Museum.
Ascendant Planned Giving will organize a planned giving program that will include: Prospect Research, Donor Cultivation and Recognition, Multichannel Marketing Plan, and Engaging Donors and the Community. “As the community ages, the loss of support and future donations may have a major effect on an organization’s ability to ensure its mission for years to come and that’s why we establish long term support and increased community recognition,” added Neil Schreck, co-founder of Ascendant Planned Giving.
Museum Board of Directors President Penny Morey said, “Our Board unanimously voted to work with Ascendant Planned Giving and are excited about the difference they will make in our future ongoing success.”
Ascendant Planned Giving is a philanthropic advisory practice touting “Generosity for Generations”. Founded by Jon Sahn and Neil Schreck, they are helping small non-profits achieve sustainability, planned giving and achieving an endowment, while teaching individuals and donors about generational giving.
