2020 Planned Giving Days Conference-
A Message from our NCGPC President


Due to the increasing risk posed by COVID-19 and with guidance from our partners and public health officials, the National Capital Gift Planning Council is postponing registration for our annual conference. It is our priority and responsibility to protect the health of our valued members, guests and staff. We apologize for this disruption in our regularly scheduled programming but feel it is a necessary and responsible choice for staying safe and healthy.

While we are currently still scheduled to host our annual conference, Planned Giving Days, at the Sheraton Silver Spring on June 2-3, 2020, we are postponing conference registration until further notice and working to create a contingency plan based on the directive issued by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, who has banned all public gatherings of more than 250 people. This means our conference may need to be canceled or rescheduled, so we ask for your patience while we evaluate our options in discussion with the Sheraton, our staff at Ascent Management, our sponsors and our presenting speakers. We expect to provide an update on PG Days by Monday, April 6, if not sooner. We especially thank our PG Days Chair and Conference Committee volunteers for all the work they’ve put into making this a great event and for being flexible and adapting to this fluid situation.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to personally thank you for your understanding as we navigate this rapidly-evolving crisis alongside you, our members. We are committed to remaining transparent and keeping you informed of any changes to your benefits or our program schedule. And we commend you for remembering our core value of cooperation now, more than ever, as we seek to create solutions for our community by helping donors experience the fulfillment of philanthropy.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at email hidden; JavaScript is required.

In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.

Elana F. Lippa
NCGPC President
