Dear esteemed PGCGP members,
The end of year is traditionally a hectic time for the fundraising profession, and it feels like the second half of 2022 has been a frantic race toward “normalcy” with 2023 destined to be more of the same. It’s important to remember during the hustle and bustle of December to take time to celebrate you and your personal and professional accomplishments, and to fully enjoy reconnecting with loved ones, friends and colleagues in person once more.
That said, the new year is a great time to recommit to strengthening and growing our profession through the Planned Giving Council of Greater Philadelphia. Why not make a resolution to recruit a colleague to join the Council this year, or get involved with a committee or attend an upcoming workshop? Networking with others in the profession in a non-virtual setting is a highly rewarding and the best way to get the most of your participation.
As an example of the Council’s involvement within the fundraising community, PGCGP nominated the late Charles “Chuck” for the 2022 Association of Fundraising Professionals -- Greater Philadelphia Chapter’s Legacy Award.
Happy holidays and warmest winter wishes for a sparkling new year!
