About PGI

PGI Advisory Council and Leadership

Our Planned Giving Initiative is guided by our PGI Advisory Council made up of a diverse group of seasoned professionals all with an enthusiasm for helping organizations become or remain sustainable through use of planned giving techniques.  We are also supported by a thoughtful and skilled board of directors and staff dedicated to serving our mission.

History of PGI

Having worked with organizations of all levels of sophistication and size, as well as development professionals ranging from those who have specific roles to those who wear many hats, we understand the challenges meeting a mission can pose. We felt that if we could offer a means to help serve those doing this important work, it would be a valuable resource.

Elizabeth and Andrew Hibel

The Planned Giving Initiative is the genesis of Elizabeth and Andrew Hibel. Both Elizabeth and Andy recognize what planned giving can mean to an organization as well as to individuals hoping to leave a legacy. For decades, their careers and volunteer work have told the story of the essential need for planned giving and has now extended to their passion of bringing planned giving benefits to many through their family foundation.
