Planned Giving Day Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

Planned Giving Day, WPGC’s Annual Conference, gives our sponsors an unparalleled opportunity to reach decision makers in charitable organizations from across the Pacific Northwest. Last year, our Conference and Professional Achievement Luncheon drew more than 180 attendees, most of whom hold positions of authority in their organizations – as board members, executive directors, or directors or managers of planned and major gifts. Attendees also include allied professionals, consisting of attorneys, accountants, and bankers.

The 2017 Conference will be held at the Conference Center in downtown Seattle’s Washington State Convention Center on May 2nd. This location – new in 2012 - was well received by sponsors and attendees alike for its convenient location and professional facility, with a floor plan that offers high-visibility and access to sponsor display tables.
