2020-2021 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.
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 those new to planned giving, generalists whose duties include planned giving, major gift officers and allied professionals such as estate attorneys, certified public accountants, and financial advisors.
In order to keep our members, guests, sponsors, and staff safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, all 2021 programs through June 30 will be virtual. The NCGPC Board retains the right to continue to offer virtual programs until it deems that it is safe to hold them in-person.
Monthly Programs: Monthly educational programs are scheduled from 11:30am-1:00pm, generally on a Wednesday or Thursday.
Members-Only Programs: Two new monthly programs for members will begin in January 2021. NCGPC’s “Office Hours” are specifically designed for members to join together and share ideas on planned giving topics. Newer or younger PG professionals can easily access a live expert in the field, or anyone can bring a complex, technical, or timely issue to discuss. NCGPC’s “Mixers” are loosely structured events, alternating between virtual coffee breaks, virtual lunches, or happy hours.
Planned Giving Days: Our annual conference will be a two-day virtual event on June 10-11, 2021, with interactive and engaging virtual education sessions — and some not offered anywhere else. Attendees typically number 240 and include members and non-members from the Washington, DC, metropolitan area as well as individuals from neighboring states. In 2021, the Conference is likely to attract attendees nationwide.
Communicating with our Members and Those on our Mailing List: We communicate with our members and others who are interested in our programs primarily by eblast and LinkedIn postings. Eblasts are sent to our membership database, as well as hundreds of others who have asked to be on our distribution list. LinkedIn postings are seen by those who are linked with NCGPC and who follow us on the platform.
Website: Our website is visited by hundreds weekly. Members access the site for information on and registration for upcoming programs and to download handouts from previous programs. Another popular destination is the job opportunities page.
Every sponsor will receive these benefits and recognition opportunities:
- The opportunity to submit topic/speaker suggestions
- Opportunity to include links to Whitepapers and Sponsor Training in a quarterly Eblast*
- Receive advance notice of program speakers and attendees
- Your logo on the website’s Sponsor page
- Your name and logo on the Distinguished Service Award video to be shown at PG Days
* Not available to Scholarship sponsors.
