A Message from Our President
The Angeletti Group launched 2020 with exciting news from our client partners and a number of new engagements. In this issue of TAGLines we share topical blogs, client highlights, and several resources! We also announce February and March TAG presentations that you won't want to miss. We will present sessions at CASE DII in Baltimore, MD February 23-25 and NEAHP in Portland, NH March 16-18. These presentations represent opportunities to hear not only from TAG, but also from amazing client partners in lively exchanges, where we will share and discuss case studies, best practices, and varied perspectives from the field.

In this Olympic year we also highlight the United States Equestrian Team (USET) Foundation which last month launched the public phase of its $40M campaign, with more than $31M already raised! The USET Foundation supports the competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America’s elite and developing International High Performance horses and athletes in partnership with the United States Equestrian Federation. Read more about USET Foundation's amazing success below in our client highlights section.

Donor Advised Funds Are Here To Stay

Is your organization prepared to work with donor advised funds? We unpack some of the most important things to know. Don't let your organization miss out on a big donation!

5 Philanthropy Trends To Watch In 2020

With a constantly changing philanthropic landscape it can be difficult to know what trends will stick and which will come and go. In this blog we take a look at 5 trends to watch as we continue through 2020. Whether it is millennials needing transparency from the organizations they support, or adapting to the new demographic of donors, we want to make sure your organization is ready to tackle the coming trends in the new year.

Making the Case Through Video Storytelling

Has your organization ever considered making a video to tell it's story? Videos provide a unique perspective and serve as an expression of why donors care. Through an alum’s success story, a patient’s recovery journey, or a volunteer’s impact, videos illuminate why your organization is the one that your audience should support.  

Why Planned Giving Is More Important to Healthcare Organizations Than Ever Before

With razor thin margins and changing reimbursement rates, hospitals and their health systems are increasingly turning to philanthropy to modernize and build facilities, fund new programs, and recruit and retain talented medical staff. In this fast-paced conversation (see link below), Jay Angeletti and Joe Tumolo of Gift Planning Development, LLC, discuss how the world of healthcare fundraising development has changed in recent years.  

Client Highlight: United States Equestrian Team Foundation
Early in January, The United States Equestrian Team Foundation (USET Foundation) celebrated with more than 500 attendees at its “Take Me To Tokyo” Gala. The Gala served as the public launch of the $40 million “Raising The Bar” Campaign. USET Foundation has already secured $31 million including lead commitments from Abigail Wexner who funded the Wexner Olympic Endowment, Fritz and Claudine Kundrun who funded the Development Dressage Program, Jane Forbes Clark who established the Clark Endowment Fund, Jacqueline B. Mars who funded the Giltedge Endowment, and Paul and Wendy Raether who committed to create the Raether Show Jumping Endowment.

Attendees included Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa who performed and donated a signed FENDER guitar and signed Harley Davidson motorcycle for the gala’s auction. 

TAG is grateful for the opportunity to partner with the USET Foundation in this highly successful initiative that provides our US high performance equestrian teams with invaluable resources to compete on the international stage.
