Private client partner Larry Katzenstein has been named to a newly created advisory board for The Stelter Company, a company that helps hundreds of charitable organizations with their marketing efforts. The five-member Technical Advisory Board will share insights and innovations as the Stelter Company addresses changing tax laws, trends in personal finance and generational shifts in giving. Members of the Advisory Board will also lead webinars on charitable giving topics.
Katzenstein, an authority and frequent speaker on estate planning and planned giving, also developed the software behind Stelter’s Gift Illustrator, a free online service used on charity web pages that allows donors to explore personal giving options. The tool, released in April, visually expresses the financial benefits that these gift types offer to donors and nonprofits.
“The Stelter Company knows that the world of charitable giving involves moral, legal, ethical, marketing and financial considerations,” said Larry Stelter, president and CEO of The Stelter Company, in a press release. “Because no one person has expertise in all these fields, we have gathered some of the most knowledgeable in the profession to give us a hand.”
Other members of the Technical Advisory Board include vice presidents of planned giving at Humboldt State University and Ball State University, and other consultants on charitable giving.
The Stelter Company provides personal philanthropy marketing services to 2,000 leading nonprofits nationwide, leveraging its understanding of philanthropic behavior to micro-target prospects through direct mail, email, Web and social media solutions. Headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, Stelter is recognized for its understanding of donor behavior and how gift planning mechanics, taxes and financial factors affect donors.
