DilemmaAs a planned giving officer I work with many prospects who also make outright gifts.  It seems that planned gifts always take a back seat to outright gifts, and that my work with a prospect is either overshadowed by that of the major gifts officer or sometimes even ignored.  The real problem comes in crediting the work I do.  Almost always, the person responsible for securing the outright gift will get all the credit.  It’s not so much the credit that I worry about, but the way my worthiness is judged.  I understand that current dollars are more important than deferred gifts, but we play an essential role in the whole development process.
