Check back for the National Capital Gift Planning Council’s 2025 Planned Giving Day Conference.

This year’s Planned Giving Day was held on June 6, 2024, at American University Washington College of Law.

2024 Conference Overview

  • Opening Keynote Speaker Cherian Koshy, CFRE, CAP®, gave our 2024 keynote on “Cultivating Inclusivity: Empowering the Next Generation of Nonprofit Leaders.”
  • Nine breakout sessions across three learning tracks (Donor Engagement, Behind the Scenes and Getting Technical) were available.
    • Donor Engagement – Planned giving is all about the relationship. This track focuses on building relationships with your donors and prospects through marketing, personalized engagement, and stewardship.
    • Behind the Scenes – A strong planned giving program is built on the behind-the-scenes systems and operations highlighted in this track, like estate administration, recruitment and retention of planned giving staff, and other best practices.
    • Getting Technical – Technicalities like taxes, laws, and gift structures can maximize a donor’s giving potential. Learn about or refresh yourself on the technical details in this track.
  • The 2024 Distinguished Service Award honoree Nikki Peters was recognized for her contributions to the planned giving field.
  • This program met CAP® (re)certification requirements and was approved for 5 credits toward CFRE (re)certification.
  • Scholarships were available.
  • Sponsors and exhibitors were on site and support the work of NCGPC.
