President's Message

Welcome to the Washington Planned Giving Council!

With more than 125 non-profit and allied professional members, WPGC is a valuable resource that connects all sectors of the gift planning community. Whether you are a fundraiser, professional advisor, consultant or board member, we offer you high-quality training on planned giving. In 2018, we will bring you the latest information on tax reform and giving trends in order to help you navigate your work. We hope you will join us in one or all of the following ways. 

Network: Network with seasoned professionals who have vast expertise on planned giving. Our new, no-cost Community Connection Program, which launched mid-2017, offers informal opportunities for you to connect with other professionals.

Learn: Our annual WPGC conference offers affordable planned giving training and continuing education in your area. And our monthly luncheons bring you thought-provoking subject matter and the chance to enhance your professional network.

Get involved: Volunteering on a committee is a great way to give your time, share your knowledge, learn more and enhance your network. Contact the WPGC office at [email protected] if you have interest in serving on a committee. 

If you're a member, thank you! We truly appreciate your joining us. And if you're not, please join us
