  1. I depend on Planned Giving Advisors for timely, accurate and useful philanthropic information and advice. The articles, materials, training seminars and webinars are excellent tools that I benefit from and regularly use in my gift planning program.

  2. I have known Jonathan for almost two decades. He has helped me to successfully navigate numerous challenging situations. I can always count on him for great advice. Jonathan has a genuine passion for Planned Giving and is a joy to work with.

  3. Jonathan Gudema is the consummate planned giving professional. He combines up-to-date technical expertise with sensitivity to a donor’s life situation and interests.

  4. Jonathan Gudema provided planned giving expertise to SUNY Cortland for several years that I used to provide planned giving proposals to our alumni and emeriti. What a pleasure it is to have an expert to bounce ideas off of and to guide you in closing a gift. Jonathan has raised planned gifts so he knows how to deal with potential donors. He is passionate about planned giving and is fun to work with.

  5. Jonathan conducted a total-program assessment for us in 2013, and his sharp observations are helping us focus our activities for a greater ROI with limited staff time. His presentations on planned giving basics to development staff have been valuable.
