Giving you access to education relevant to your career and the challenges you face is CGP's top priority for 2018. In January we launched our new Shop and have been excited with the number of CGP members participating. We see this is what you want and we are excited to give you more!
Whether you just renewed your membership or your renewal date is approaching, CGP wants to say thank you for your dedication to the gift planning field. We hope CGP has provided as much value to you as you have for us. Our members are the motivation for this organization to provide top-notch education, thoughtful research and advocacy that will protect charitable giving.

Gift planning is all about the future. So one would expect professional gift planners to be highly focused on tomorrow. But are we? I, for one, look at the transitions now faced by our field and find myself really glad that the CGP National Conference is coming up in October in Las Vegas.
Our field faces changes both high-profile and obscure. Of course, our organizations and donors are counting on us to adapt to recent tax reform legislation, and that has us all scrambling. Less urgent but no less important: those same organizations and donors are also counting on us to ensure the future of the gift planning field. In an environment where gift planning responsibilities are increasingly placed on fundraising generalists, and where the professional gift planning community is rapidly aging (only 12 percent of gift planners are under the age of 40), we all need to be thinking about the future of the profession.
