Membership Overview

For 40 years, the Planned Giving Group of New England has been promoting philanthropy by educating, connecting and inspiring gift planning professionals throughout New England. Whether you work in the not-for-profit sector or as an allied professional, a PGGNE membership offers great value for your career development dollar. We offer a robust line-up of monthly presentations and lectures, with plenty of networking opportunities as well.

 

The membership year is July 1 to June 30. Our membership drive begins in the late summer, however, we accept memberships throughout the year. Due to our dues structure and the value you will still receive by joining in March, for example, we are unable to pro-rate member dues.

 


 

What Members are Saying

“PGGNE is one of the top professional development experiences for gift planners, bar none!” exclaims Sam Samuels, Smith College’s Director of Planned Giving.

“I love the networking at the coffee hour and at lunch,” says long-time PGGNE member Cyndy Viveiros, Gift Planning Representative for The Salvation Army.

“My PGGNE membership is a no brainer,” says Marion Case, Associate Director, Gift Planning at Dana Farber Cancer Institute. “I learn something new at every meeting.”
