It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council (GCPGC). Founded in 1992, the Council has been the trusted source to increase the quantity and quality of planned gifts in Greater Cincinnati by providing a forum for education, training and networking to our members.

GCPGC has been recognized by the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners for our innovative and successful programing including:

Conversation & Coffee – Generously sponsored by the Fifth Third Foundation, this monthly series welcomes captivating speakers and networking opportunities.

Knowledge @ Noon – This quarterly series offers pre-recorded webinars with attendee interaction for a high-quality learning and networking experience.

GCPGC Socials – Special after-work events held throughout the year allow you to engage with other members and friends.

Planned Giving on the Run – This acclaimed course offers the “soup to nuts” about planned giving. Area experts lead each of the six, monthly courses.

Mentoring – Our vast network of volunteers are available to guide and answer questions about planned giving.

Voices of Giving – Now in its 24th year, this special, free event recognizes professional advisors and donors whose planned gift makes a difference to non-profits.

Diversity and Inclusive Initiative – I am proud of our Council’s commitment to Diversity and Inclusion. As a previous Diversity and Inclusion scholarship winner and member of the LGBT community, I am committed to engaging diverse voices of professionals in our field in order to better appreciate our donors’ lived experiences and make lasting connections with them. GCPGC is pleased to offer scholarships for annual memberships as well as to Planned Giving on the Run.
