At our July 26, 2022 event, board member Jack Owen shared a recent Tax Court case where a donor lost a $400K plus charitable tax deduction due to a charity's failure to include certain language in the "contemporaneous written acknowledgment" as required in the tax substantiation rules. You can read more about the matter and learn how your charity can avoid similar outcomes by visiting our Legislative Affairs page.
While the Pittsburgh Planned Giving Council has had a Job Listings page for many years, we've implemented a few changes to make it more user friendly for both candidates and employers. The job listings were previously entered manually for each posting in a simple list. No more! Each listing now has it's own standalone page which can support a short 2-3 paragraph summary of the position and include links to job descriptions or applications. We can even include a logo!
Even more exciting, we've set up a dedicated email list to keep jobseekers automatically informed when new jobs are posted. No more waiting around until our next newsletter goes out--new job postings are sent out at 8 AM EST each weekday to list subscribers. No more wondering whether your job has been posted. Now you will know!
We hope that these enhancements will be valuable to both job seekers and job posters. Let us know what you think!

Longtime PPGC chapter administrator, Sarah Poweska, has left to pursue other opportunities. During her tenure, she was instrumental in helping the council function smoothly including handling membership, coordinating chapter events and the Emerging Philanthropy Conference, preparing newsletter communications (such as this one) and maintaining our website. She has been an invaluable contributor and we wish her luck in the future.
In her absence, several board members will be "stepping up" to handle her many different tasks. You may still utilize the email@example.com email address to contact us, but there may be some delays in responding. We appreciate your patience.
