‘A Good Foundation’

Aaron Levinson elevated his planned giving program to a whole new level, thanks to Stelter. “My strengths are with people; I’m better off talking to donors,” the planned giving director at the Los Angeles Jewish Home says. “My partnership with Stelter frees me up to do that. I’ve got that good foundation running behind me. And the leads they provide me fill up my schedule, keeping me in the field where I can make the most impact.”

Reaching the next level

When Aaron assumed his current role in 2010, the Jewish Home published a planned giving newsletter three times a year to about 2,000 people.

However, a meeting with Jeremy Stelter, who was Stelter’s director of business development for the Western U.S. at the time, started a deeper conversation. “Jeremy really challenged me to think of my program differently,” Aaron says. The goal: Evolve the program into an all-inclusive plan that would better capture people’s attention—and hold it there with thoughtful planned giving content. By providing a flow of information, rather than just drops three times a year, the Jewish Home could position itself as a trusted resource on planned giving and a place that values donors and relationships.
