PGGCT is an affiliate of the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (NCP). NCP helps people and organizations create charitable gifts in the best interests of the charity and donor.


PGGCT meets five times a year, usually on the 2nd Thursday of every other month, from September through May.  Our programs are centrally located at Ashlar Village in Wallingford.    We typically offer two or three sessions with a break in between, followed by lunch, at each program. We 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.
