Welcome to Planned Giving Council of Palm Beach County!

Dear Colleagues,

The 2015-16 Planned Giving Council of Palm Beach County was a resounding success with well-received topics and speakers, an increase in membership and loyal sponsors. We look forward to continued growth in the coming year with a great slate of presenters in the charitable planning arena, as well as renewed opportunities to connect with new and old friends.

We have opted to change venues for the coming year to Embassy Suites West Palm Beach, which is just 5 minutes away from our former location.

Please save the date for our opening breakfast meeting which will be Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at 7:45 a.m.

This year’s programming, spearheaded by Margaret May Damen, contains timely issues relevant to the philanthropic community. Please be sure to review the enclosed calendar of our upcoming events and consider bringing a colleague with you who might be interested.

In addition, we will have a new user-friendly website, featuring an interactive membership directory with headshots, increased visibility for sponsors and refreshed style with links to social media. We look forward to launching it before the new season.

Our exciting new sponsorship opportunities (some of which include a fully paid membership) are outlined in the Sponsor Application, and we hope you will encourage your company or colleagues to continue to support the Planned Giving Council of Palm Beach County.

Your completed Membership Application and your dues payment are greatly appreciated by August 15, 2016.

Thank you so much for your support and we look forward to another fantastic year!

Best regards,

October 11, 2016
