    Happy Estate Planning Awareness Week! Didn't know that this was a thing? The third week of October has been recognized as National Estate Planning Awareness Week since 2008 to help the public understand what estate planning is and why it's so vital.

    We are thrilled to share that the Emerging Philanthropy Conference on September 29 was a huge success, thanks to all of you who attended. We had a record-breaking attendance of 218, which was a 50% increase from 2022!

    We want to thank MC Houser and the EPC Planning Committee for organizing a fantastic day of professional development, networking, and fun. We learned from experts and peers about topics such as social media fundraising, donor retention, grant writing, and more. We also had a chance to connect with other professionals and organizations in the field of philanthropy.

    We hope you enjoyed the conference as much as we did. We’d love to see your pictures and hear your feedback. Please visit https://ppgc.net/EPC-Pictures to upload and share your photos. We hope to see you at next year's conference!
