The Southwest Florida Planned Giving Council is now the Charitable Gift Planners of Southwest Florida
Charitable Gift Planners of Southwest Florida provides the latest information to professionals, giving them the resources to initiate meaningful impact for their clients and organizational missions.
Welcome to the Charitable Gift Planners of Southwest Florida! For 23 years we have been providing planned giving educational programs and networking opportunities for development professionals, attorneys, CPAs, financial advisors, and trust officers. If you work with clients concerning charitable giving, then we encourage you to join our organization and attend our programs which feature the latest charitable giving vehicles and techniques and provide updates on current tax laws which affect philanthropy. We strive to provide our members with a wide range of educational programs and networking opportunities in a collegial and fun environment.
Our organization is an affiliate of the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners, the leading national organization for gift planning professionals. We are a volunteer-led association dedicated to professionals whose work includes developing, marketing, and administering charitable planned gifts. Our membership consists of both professional advisors (attorneys, CPAs, financial advisors, and trust officers) and development professionals from local nonprofit organizations.
I thank my amazing Board of Directors for agreeing to serve for the 2020 year – Elizabeth Rabbitt-Stephen (Vice President), Melodie Rich (Treasurer), Kathy Jordan (Secretary), Susie Bowie, Susan Brennan, Jan Chester, Richard Gans, Barbara Jones, Ronald Koepsel, James Tollerton, Jocelyn Udell, Daniel Vigne, Tom Waters, and Martha Wells – please check out their extensive biographies on the Board tab above.
The mission of the Charitable Gift Planners of Southwest Florida is to promote philanthropy in our community through planned giving. We seek to increase the quality, as well as the quantity, of charitable planned gifts by serving as a resource for the gift planning communities of Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
We hope you will consider joining our membership. If you would like to host an educational program or if you have any questions about our association, please contact us at info@CharitableGiftPlannersSWFL.org.
