Formerly known as Planned Giving Round Table of Arizona
CGP is proud to announce a new initiative to support our members who represent diverse communities through a scholarship program to attend the 2020 CGP Virtual Conference. The scholarship includes registration to attend the full conference and a one-year national membership. Members and council member prospects representing Black, LatinX, Asian/Pacific Islander, Indigenous, two or more races, LGBTQI, and differently abled communities are invited to participate.
“The CGP Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force has developed several recommendations to improve our efforts to recruit, support and advance members from diverse communities. This initiative capitalizes on the unique circumstances of the 2020 CGP Conference to invite members of these communities to increase their skills and build their professional network.” – Marion Yongue, CGP Board of Directors and Chair, CGP Task Force on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
CGP is reaching out to our network of councils asking you to help communicate the initiative to your membership and encourage individuals to participate in this open program. An application is required and can be found here. Applications will be accepted through September 25th. You may contact email@example.com with any questions. Please take advantage of this opportunity to support our diverse communities and help us to build a stronger and more inclusive professional community.

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the CGP Board of Directors unanimously voted to present the 2020 CGP Conference entirely online. The safety of our members must be our top priority. With the continuing widespread presence of the virus, the board determined there was no certainty CGP could safely host an in-person large-scale event in October.
Plans are already underway to present a premier online conference using industry-leading technology and the very latest best practices in successful online meetings. CGP will continue to focus on presenting the highest quality professional development sessions, creating opportunities for networking, and connecting attendees with our exhibitors and sponsors to learn about the latest products and services in our field.
The conference dates of October 7-9 remain the same, though the daily schedule will change. Additional information regarding schedules and fees will be published over the next few weeks. If you have a fiscal year ending June 30 and are interested in registering under your current year budget, please contact Carey Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Carey can provide invoices and process registrations as needed.
Conference Chair Meryl Cosentino, the 2020 Conference Committee, CGP Board of Directors and CGP staff all look forward to presenting a fantastic conference that safely brings our community together to share knowledge, visit with colleagues and make new acquaintances. We hope to see you in October.

Join us for Planned Giving 203
The Arizona Community Foundation Center for Planned Giving invites you to join us for the final workshop in the Planned Giving 200 Series.
All the technical knowledge in the world does no good if you can't execute the ask. Find out what your asking style is and how it works (or doesn't) with different styles during Planned Giving 203, All About Asking. Then you can learn how to decide what your donor might be most receptive to hearing.
