The North Carolina Council of Charitable Gift Planners encourages the education and training of the planned giving community of North Carolina, which includes development officers for charities and applied professionals. The North Carolina Planned Giving Council is a chapter of the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners. Originally created in 1988 as the National Committee on Planned Giving (NCPG), the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (CGP) is a 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to help people and organizations create charitable giving experiences that are the most meaningful in achieving both charitable mission and the philanthropic, financial, family and personal goals of the donor.
CGP achieves its mission through research, education, advocacy, community dialogue and the setting of standards and best practices in philanthropic planning. CGP strives to engage all constituents in the charitable gift planning process: planned giving and major gifts professionals, nonprofit managers and trustees, financial and estate planners, trust managers and administrators.
