Scholarships

Scholarship applications will open in late April.

"I have not stopped thinking about what I learned at Planned Giving Days about cultivating individual donors. The expertise in the room including facilitators and attendees was invaluable to me as a first-time attendee who is hungry to be an expert fundraiser."

2019 PG Days Scholarship Recipients

If you are currently job searching, or your organization has a small budget for professional development (or no budget at all), there is still an opportunity for you to attend PG Days, the premier planned giving conference in the mid-Atlantic region! The National Capital Gift Planning Council (NCGPC) is pleased to offer scholarships to attend our virtual conference this June 10-11, 2021.

We invite you to apply online for a scholarship if you are committed to advancing responsible and ethical gift planning at your organization or company. You do NOT have to be a member of NCGPC to apply. The scholarship program is open to all NCGPC members and prospective members, and we especially encourage those representing Black, LatinX, Asian/Pacific Islander, Indigenous, two or more races, LBGTQI+, hard of hearing, neurodivergent and other disability communities to apply. If you are not in need of a scholarship, please consider sharing this with your network, and know that we appreciate your efforts to help us build a stronger and more diverse and inclusive professional community.

With appreciation to State Street Global Advisors and Campbell and Company for their sponsorship support, three “full-ride” scholarships will be awarded and include:

  • a one year complimentary membership with the National Capital Gift Planning Council (NCGPC);
  • a one year complimentary membership with the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (CGP);
  • a complimentary registration for this year’s PG Days Conference.

Additional scholarships may be awarded for individual attendance at this year’s PG Days Conference, thanks to the generosity of all those who have contributed financially to the NCGPC scholarship fund.

Interested individuals must complete a short application. The deadline for applications is 5:00 pm EDT on Wednesday, May 5, 2021. Scholarship recipients will be notified by May 11, 2021. If you are not selected for a scholarship, you will still have time to register for the conference at our early bird rate of $99 members/$129 non-members before the early bird deadline on May 14, 2021. Only one person per organization can be awarded a scholarship.
