 National Association of Charitable Gift Planners

CGP has grown with and for the charitable gift planning industry. From think tank conversations, to a federation of local councils, to a professional organization, we've evolved to serve members nationwide. Together, we build a bold future of smarter giving and bigger impact.


Northern Ohio Planned Giving Council

The goal of the Northern Ohio Planned Giving Council is to encourage education and provide training for the gift planning community and to establish a forum for effective communication among members who serve the charitable, financial and estate planning needs of donors and clients in northern Ohio. Central Ohio chapter members may attend Northern Ohio PGC programs at their member rate.
