Volunteer Opportunities

Join a Committee

The work of the Council is done, in large part, by committees. If you are interested in volunteering, find a committee that suits your skills and interests.

Why Join a Committee?

Join a committee to play an important role in the Council’s efforts to provide networking and educational opportunities to our members. You can also learn more about trends in gift planning, meet interesting colleagues, grow your network and advance your career, and get to know the organizations that support gift planning professionals.

How Much Time Does it Take?

It’s less work than you might expect. Committees meet by phone, either monthly or quarterly. The work typically takes only two hours a month. For additional details, speak with the chair of the committee in which you are interested.
