Charles Fischer has been an intense fan of the Ducks for thirty years and has written reports about the football team on numerous internet football boards/blogs for over a dozen years. Known as “FishDuck” on those boards, he is acknowledged for providing intense detail in his scrimmage reports and in his Xs and Os play analyses. In the summer of 2010, he was the first of any Oregon Sports Media to correctly and precisely identify and announce the new Oregon Hybrid 3-4 Phillips One-Gap Defense. (With Zone Blitz Packages) That same season saw another first: his in-depth explanation of the core formations, plays and strategies of the Oregon Spread Offense, thus providing an important resource for Oregon fans.
He works for IMS Securities Inc. has been a financial advisor for 29 years serving clients in seven different states. His work in asset management is complemented by workshops presented to churches and charities showing retired people how to leave Planned Gifts for their favorite organization. He has set up millions of dollars in Planned Gifts for Non-Profits by using strategies with a donor’s investments, insurance vehicles, or IRAs which frequently are much more effective and simpler than the usual approach of a bequest through a will/trust, charitable gift annuities or charitable trusts.
Charles has added to his workshop the dimension of helping Christians learn how to complete an Oregon Advance Directive correctly (which deals with End-of-Life Decisions) while staying true to their faith.
He has been active in Church Leadership over the years as he served on Finance Committees, Administrative Councils, Parish Councils, and as Director of Development for over a dozen years. He has had experience running Stewardship Campaigns, Capital Campaigns for Building Projects, as well as setting up Planned Gifts for churches and other charities. He also led two groups in forming Foundations to support those churches, thus he has had extensive familiarity in dealing with the Church/Charity Finance issues that we all contend with.
He and his wife Lois, a daughter, Christine, and their dog (Abbie) reside in Eugene, Oregon. Between his asset management work for clients, three sets of workshops per year for charities, and staying well versed in his interest of College Football—Charles maintains a full schedule.
