My Apple Tree

My Apple Tree

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.

I wanted you to know that in this current pandemic, which is unprecedented in most of our lives and experiences, you all are very much on our minds and in our hearts, and we all at PlannedGiving.Com hope you and your families are faring well.

Inaction Has Consequences.

We now have a new pandemic to deal with: The Pandemic of Fear. In these tenuous times we are often paralyzed by inaction, waiting to see what’s next before we make a move. But we don’t want our “what’s next” to be determined by doubt or complacency. What actions can we take while we’re perhaps in temporary isolation and away from the world and society, not knowing what the days to come will bring?

Instead of succumbing to fear and inaction (and I sometimes catch myself at this), change your outlook and take the future into your own hands. Take action, because attitude determines altitude.*** This can include two things: Use your time to expand your knowledge base, which will ultimately strengthen not only your career but your nonprofit’s financial future, and secondly, realize that your donors are thinking very much about their own future and the legacy they will leave behind (myself included).

Remember, fear is overcome by action, and studies show it. 

We’re Here to Help.

A plethora of resources are available at and are all designed to help you and your organization prosper, both in the stormy present and into the brighter future. We’re open for business, here for whatever you might need, and hope to hear from all of you.

Expect a few emails from us on a number of upcoming webinars that will get you started.

Stay tuned and stay well.
