Prospective AudienceThe PGCGP has almost two hundred members from the Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Delaware metro region, including members from many of the region’s largest not-for-profit organizations and universities. Our programs also attract those new to planned giving, generalists whose duties include planned giving, major gift officers and allied professionals such as philanthropic advisors, estate attorneys, certified public accountants, and financial advisors.
In 2024, we continue to update our sponsorship opportunities to better reflect our organizational needs. We plan to host our premier educational program – the Planned Giving Day Conference – in-person at the Inn at Villanova on Wednesday, October 16, 2024.
Educational Programs: PGCGP educational programs are usually scheduled between 11:00am to 2:00pm and include an expert speaker on topics related to planned giving and philanthropy. PGCGP educational programs will take place in March, June, and September at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia.
Networking Event: During the summer, join the Planned Giving Council's past and current members in a first ever networking event (limited to 50 attendees). The attendees will go through an interactive learning session on values, focus areas, and the latest research on how to further your client or donor’s philanthropic work. In this workshop and mini-networking session, uses research from Stanford University’s Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society to explore a foundational process fundraiser's can discuss with their clients/donors to help them be most effective in pursuing philanthropic goals.
Planned Giving Day Conference: We will host our annual premier educational annual conference , the 2024 Planned Giving Day Conference, on Wednesday, October 16, 2024, at the Inn at Villanova. This all-day conference will feature two keynote speakers and four educational tracks for all levels of experience. Attendees typically number 150+ and include members and non-members from the Philadelphia metropolitan area as well as individuals from neighboring states. In 2023, the in-person conference attracted attendees and vendors regionally and nationally. Our Theme this year, “Legacy Giving – A Harvest of Gratitude,” embodies the enduring power of legacy giving for today and tomorrow.
Planned Giving Course: The Planned Giving Course provides a foundation for fundraising professionals just entering the field of Planned Giving as well as technical knowledge for financial advisors and attorneys regarding how to incorporate charitable giving in an overarching financial and estate plan for their clients. For 2024, the Planned Giving Course will be offered through a hybrid model incorporating formal learning (webinars and workshops), access to mentors, and peer-to-peer interactions.
