Expanding the education, understanding and use of planned giving.
“We’re so grateful that you have kept BandWith in mind over the past several years, lifting up our mission with your support and advocacy. It is a daily blessing to be able to share the gift of music with our peers and our community and we are humbled by the generosity that helps allow that to happen.”
“Thank you for the scholarship to attend! It made a huge difference in my mindset about how long I plan on staying in the fundraising world because I learned so much! Thank you!”
“Without this support, Virginia Tech would not have pursued this opportunity. However, as a result of PGI’s investment, we were able to expose a talented student to a career in Advancement in general and planned giving in particular. We were able to complete two projects that we have needed for some time. And perhaps most importantly, we have gained important experience in how to operate an internship – something that will be extremely valuable as we continue to grapple with talent pipeline issues that so many Advancement offices face.”
The mission of the Planned Giving Initiative is to expand the education, understanding and use of planned giving and envisions universal nonprofit access to the benefits of planned giving.
The Planned Giving Initiative works to foster the careers and education of individuals working in the field of planned giving or serving blended roles in development. Grants are given to increase access to planned giving tools, resources and mentors to further professional development and increased use of planned giving as a whole.
Several factors go into sustaining a successful planned giving program. The Planned Giving Initiative recognizes the having resources available to all, in the form of mentors, professional services and resources can be the first, valuable step to get started or to continue to thrive.
The PGI is uniquely positioned to offer assistance to balance out the inequities endured by small and medium sized not-for-profits that do not have the benefit of planned giving programs.
