Western Regional Planned Giving Conference

Welcome to the new Los Angeles Council of Charitable Gift Planners (LACGP) Website.

Welcome to the Los Angeles Council of Charitable Gift Planners.  You will notice a new name, a new look and renewed dedication to providing you with the resources you need as a planned giving professional.  You may wonder what happened to our former identity.  Like many things, change is inevitable and we are embracing the need to update who we are, what we offer and how we communicate with you.

You may remember us as the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning (PPP-LA) or even further back in our history as the Planned Giving Roundtable of Southern California.  In spite of a new name, we remain a collective of professionals integrated across fields and working to assist our clients and donors in their philanthropic journey.

Whether you come to us as a planned giving officer, attorney, trust officer, advisor, financial advisor, insurance agent or other professional, LACGP is dedicated to ensuring the best resources for your clients and for you.  We challenge you to become involved!  As a member of the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners, the Los Angeles Council is part of a greater network dedicated to the advancement of your work and career through education, resources and advocacy.  Bring your expertise and knowledge to this community, use this website to enrich and enhance your experience, volunteer, expand your network, engage!
