2016-2017 Sponsorship Opportunities

Are you looking for the best way to reach planned giving professionals in the greater Washington, DC, area? The National Capital Gift Planning Council (NCGPC) offers many options designed to fit your needs and budget.

Prospective Audience

NCGPC has nearly 200 members from the capital metro area, including decision makers from many of the region’s largest not-for-profit organizations. Our programs also attract nonmembers who are new to the profession or those whose jobs include general fundraising and planned giving.

Sponsorship Avenues

Monthly Programs: Annually, from September-June, NCGPC holds nine monthly programs: seven luncheons, one breakfast, and one late afternoon program/networking social. (The annual conference is held in May, so there is no monthly program.) Typical monthly attendance is 70 or more. The February luncheon, our largest, is held jointly with AFP DC, attracting a sold-out audience of 120. Monthly luncheons include a Nuts and Bolts presentation before lunch and the featured presentation after the meal. Several times a year we have post-luncheon sessions, either for novices in planned giving or for veterans of the profession.

Planned Giving Days: Our annual conference, which will celebrate its 25th Anniversary in 2017, is a two-day, sold-out event held in May. The 240 attendees include both locals and others from states from New York to Florida.

Broadcast Emails: We communicate with our members primarily by eblasts. They are sent to our membership database, as well as hundreds of others who have asked to be on our distribution list.

Website: Redesigned in 2016, our new and extremely popular website is visited hundreds of times weekly. Members access the site for information on and registration for upcoming programs and to download handouts from previous programs. Other popular pages are the “Ethics Corner” posts and the job board, where nonprofits post job opportunities.
