Planned Giving on the Run

Planned Giving on the Run is a program that gives you all the nuts and bolts you need to start a planned giving program.

Has "start planned giving program" been on your project list for the past five years?

Are you avoiding planned giving because you aren't a tax expert?

Is your board still asking, "Why don't we have an endowment?"

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then Planned Giving on the Run is for you.

Planned Giving on the Run has is starting its eleventh session in as many years here in Cincinnati.  It has trained over 200 people in our community in that time.  Each session commonly consists of 25-30 students, including executive and/or development directors, frontline fundraisers, development coordinators, as well as those staff hired to specialize in gift planning.  In addition, each session typically consists of a dozen or so individuals from the financial or legal fields, including attorneys, wealth planners, and bank trust officers.

GCPGC is a local council of the Partnership of Philanthropic Planning (formerly known as the NCPG). It is one of the largest and most active planned giving councils in the country. Membership makes great sense and is a terrific value with a host of benefits.

None of the work of GCPGC would be possible without the great support of our sponsors. Please support them!  Interested in sponsorship?  Please call (513) 554-3071.
