About Charitable Gift Planners of Central Florida
Charitable Gift Planners of Central Florida (CGPCF) is a professional association for non-profit development officers and allied professionals. Our purpose is to educate members about charitable gift planning, advance the mission of non-profit organizations that employ them, and better serve the philanthropic goals of our donors and clients.
CGPCF is an affiliate of the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (CGP), the professional association for those whose work involves developing, marketing, administering and advising charitable planned gifts. Originally created in 1988 as the National Committee on Planned Giving (NCPG), the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (CGP) is a 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to help people and organizations create charitable giving experiences that are the most meaningful in achieving both charitable mission and the philanthropic, financial, family and personal goals of the donor.
CGP achieves its mission through research, education, advocacy, community dialogue and the setting of standards and best practices in philanthropic planning. CGP strives to engage all constituents in the charitable gift planning process: planned giving and major gifts professionals, nonprofit managers and trustees, financial and estate planners, trust managers and administrators.
Between CGP and the Indiana University Center on Philanthropy, CGPCF has the highest caliber of resources available to provide continuing education and professional networking to the gift planning professionals in our community.
