From the President

February 2018


Harness • Connect • Engage

Dear PGGNE Members and Friends,


Welcome back to our spring season! We had a great winter webinar series. Beth Ridout of The Nature Conservancy presented on Estate Administration. Jeff Comfort of Oregon State University illustrated the topic of Planned and Major Gift Collaboration. Pictured below, Boston College fundraisers watch Jeff Comfort's presentation. As you can see, it was an appropriate topic to share and engage with peer gift officers. Much thanks to our presenters!
