About the Planned Giving Group of Connecticut

PGGCT is an association of more than 130 fund raising professionals and people in related fields. Our members represent all levels of experience and share an interest in charitable gift planning. The Planned Giving Group of Connecticut was formed in 1988.

Mission Statement

The Planned Giving Group of Connecticut will provide ethically-focused gift planning education, training and advocacy to development professionals, professional advisors, volunteers and donor advisors.

About Our Meetings

PGGCT meets five times a year, usually on the 2nd Thursday of every other month, from September through May.

The Planned Giving Group of Connecticut typically offers three sessions at each meeting: two sessions with a break in between, followed by lunch, which includes networking opportunities and updates on the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning and Leave a Legacy. We recently expanded our programming to include sessions for both advanced charitable planners and for those new to the field. Look at our meeting schedule to find Advanced Case Study Workshops as well as Nuts and Bolts Sessions. These are held just prior to the first regularly scheduled session.

A Letter From Our President:

Dear PGGCT Members and Friends,

Happy 2015! I am delighted to welcome you to the Planned Giving Group of CT. It has been my experience that the educational opportunities as well as the networking and camaraderie are among the best in the field.

I encourage you, whether you work in the non-profit sector or as an allied professional, to take advantage of our top notch programs, learn from and share your knowledge with your peers.

A PGGCT membership holds great value. Please bring your colleagues to a meeting. Suggest a topic or speaker for a future meeting. Get involved on a committee. Meet members of the board.

Whether you are new to the field or a seasoned professional, we are always learning. I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting and welcome your feedback and ideas.

With kind regards,
Dotty Weston-Murphy
Vice President, Donor & Professional Services, The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven
