The Power of Legacy Stories

Here’s a compelling story capturing the impact of alumni legacy stories. Famous or not, alumni of our institutions have life stories to tell, and facilitating that as part of the cultivation and/or stewardship phases for that alumnus/alumna and his/her family can be very powerful. I’ve had the great fortune to be a part of discovering and sharing some amazing legacies in my work, and significant gifts to the institutions in questions have resulted from that process.

As a genealogy nut I’m particularly fond of this type of work, but this is a must for any development professional.
