The Pittsburgh Planned Giving Council is a group of professionals committed to promoting gifts to charity as a positive way to achieve individual estate planning objectives through education.

PPGC is affiliated with the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (formerly the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning) and ascribes to its Code of Ethics. PPGC is education focused, conducting five bi-monthly meeting programs, a comprehensive regional education conference and a Leave A Legacy™ community awareness program in conjunction with the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning.

PPGC is committed to partnering wherever possible to promote philanthropy as a viable estate planning tool that addresses personal and community-related planning objectives.

Founded in 1984, PPGC is one of the oldest planned giving councils in the United States with nearly 150 members. 




The Call for Proposals is open until January 6, 2017!

Please consider sharing your expertise by presenting a session at the 2017 Emerging Philanthropy Conference!

Fundraising, non-profit, and allied professions have many goals that compete for their attention including doing what’s best for your institution while serving your donor; meeting immediate needs while planning for the future; and implementing best practices under the reality of resources at hand. This year’s theme “Who’s Driving The Car? Navigating Philanthropy” aims to provide professionals with the education they need to plot the course to success.

For additional information or to recommend potential presenters, contact Alexis Yakemovic, Education Committee Chair, at amy47@pitt.edu or 412-647-4726.
