Novice Study Group

If you are new to planned giving, making a career/job change to planned giving, or being asked to add planned giving to your skillset, you will find this program particularly beneficial. Open to members and non-members alike, The Novice Study Group is a 30-45 minute informal discussion held immediately after most regular monthly luncheons. It's a great opportunity to ask a question about something you didn't understand from the Nuts and Bolts or Luncheon presentations or bring a topic you'd like to discuss.

Facilitated by NCGPC volunteers, these sessions feature an interactive discussion and an opportunity to ask questions about planned giving in a small group setting.

For questions about the program or to apply to be a volunteer facilitator, please contact Novice Study Group Chair Patricia Wang at or Vice President of Programming, Elana Lippa, at
