Our mission is to foster awareness and to provide an effective forum for education, communication, networking and collaboration for our gift planning community.
A Message From The President
Looking back on 2020-21 I think it is safe to say . . . we learned a lot. We learned how adaptable we are – we learned, that as a people, when things are at their worst . . . we are often at our best.
Looking forward to our 2021-22 year I am honored to be your President and humbled to lead such a diverse group of Executives and Fund Development Professionals who, collectively, bring so much experience, drive, and commitment to our Board and Committees.
Your Board has set several goals for the coming year. All center around the primary goal of providing value for you through your positive PGC experience. Value through programing, membership benefits, networking, community impact and expert resources, all of which will make your job easier and most important, more successful.
The Planned Giving Council has a remarkably simple mission. Bring nonprofit and for-profit professionals, at various stages in their careers, together to create an effective forum for learning, networking, and collaboration for our gift planning community. Simple. Not easy, but simple.
Your Board of Directors and I pledge our commitment in providing you a balanced, enriched, and positive experience which is personally tailored to your individual needs in fund development.
Thank you, again, for the opportunity to serve you.
Michael Elias – President, PGCNEFL
