Ms. Davidson is compensated by the nonprofit organization for the
services provided as gift planner and consultant. Compensation is based
on the services provided to the nonprofit organization. The consultant

associated professional advisors and does not receive commissions for
completed gifts. Services to be provided and compensation for those
services are negotiated at the beginning of the engagement.
The Consultant is a member of the Planned Giving Group of Indiana, which

for the Charitable Gift Planner" promulgated by the National Committee

The consultant does not offer legal or tax advice to charitable
organizations or their donors. The charitable organization and those
involved in making planned and major gifts to that organization should
consult with an attorney or accountant for independent advice.
