From the President 

"I expect to pass through life but once. If, therefore, there can be any kindness I can show, or any good things I can do to any fellow human being, let me do it now, and not defer it or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again."

William Penn Ghandi


"It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself." Ralph Waldo Emerson


Dear Friends,


Summer is here and PPGGNY is hard at work planning our upcoming season. Please note that our monthly meetings in 2019- 2020 will be held on Thursdays each month (not Wednesdays). The first session will be held on Thursday, 9/16/2019, and will feature a morning session from 10:00 am -12:00 pm and a luncheon from 12:00 – 2:00 pm. Save the Date for our Awards Luncheon: On October 24, we will hold our bi-annual Awards Luncheon where we honor two planned giving champions who have made significant contributions to the field of planned giving and to PPGGNY. This year we will present our Lifetime Achievement Award to Robert F. Sharpe, Jr., and the PPGGNY Cloughy Service Award to our own Ronald Brown. In addition, this year we will present a special Recognition Award to Dan O’Connell for his dedication to PPGGNY. So please save the date of 10/24 to be a part of this celebration to honor these remarkable individuals who have impacted PPGGNY and the field of planned giving so significantly.



Membership registration is now open for the 2019-2020 year. Memberships run from July 1 to June 30 each year. Please join and connect with this amazing network of professionals as soon as possible over the summer so you can take advantage of all the benefits right away. The colleagues you meet can be invaluable to you, your job and your career. Stay tuned: We will again be holding a members only networking event this fall. 



Committees are forming and actively starting their efforts for the next year. If you are interested in getting involved, please sign-up using the volunteer form on the website or email and provide your contact information and what committee(s) you may be interested in. 


PG Day 2020

Planned Giving Day NYC 2020 will take place on May 14, 2020 at the Convene conference space in Times Square again. Mark your calendars now so you won’t miss it. 


Thank you!

As I mentioned at PG Day in May, it has been an incredible honor for me to serve as President of PPGGNY these past two years. Being involved in PPGGNY has been a most rewarding professional experience and I am grateful for having had this opportunity. I thank all the Board Members, Committee Members and Volunteers for all their hard work over the past years. I know that we are in good hands with our new President, Stacy Sulman, at the helm! I look forward to seeing you all in the fall. Enjoy the summer!




Marilyn Van Houten, JD
PPGGNY President
