Letter from the President
Welcome to the new Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council! Ok, so maybe we are not technically new, but we have certainly made some awesome upgrades to the Council over the past year. Starting with our new look. We are pleased to unveil our new logo featured here on our new website! We are, of course, still dedicated to our mission of increasing the quantity and quality of planned gifts in our community by providing a forum for education, training, and networking to our members. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion will help us continue to thrive and serve our region. By providing robust programming and growing our membership, we are focused on the sustainability and success of our Council. In fact, because of this focus, the GCPGC was selected as the recipient of the 2017 Council of the Year by the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners.
I had the distinct honor of attending the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners Conference in Baltimore a few weeks ago. As President, it was my privilege to accept this distinguished award on behalf of our Council. The award recognized a council that demonstrated significant achievement in the preceding year. It celebrated innovative programming, special events, membership growth, community impact, and other areas of contribution to the charitable gift planning field. This recognition is truly a testament to the incredible leadership, talent and passion of our members.
As you can see, this year has been full of exciting progress and innovative initiatives. While we strive to continue bettering our services, we share these updates as a start. We hope you will enjoy exploring our improved website. We will work to provide the most beneficial resources and help connect you with colleagues and information whether you are new in your career or a seasoned professional. It is remarkable to witness the power of philanthropy and the difference this Council makes every day. Thank you for being a part of our organization and helping us celebrate the new Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council!
