From the President

Dear Friends,

Words seem to fall short these days as we live through the devastation of a global pandemic, extreme economic volatility, and the terrible effects of centuries of systemic racism. Solving the deep institutional and structural issues that have caused these nationwide protests will take compassion, empathy and dedication.
 
We -- as non-profit professionals living in America -- cannot escape this new reality, one that keeps changing. Many of us are looking for ways to understand, heal and cope. 
 
PPGGNY stands out against hatred and discrimination of any kind. Recognizing the importance of diversity and inclusion within our leadership, membership and the field, PPGGNY’s Board began the process over the past six months of strategizing how we can better achieve these goals. WE KNOW WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO, BUT I look forward to sharing more with you in the months to come.  
 
PPGGNY is more than just an association for advocates of charitable giving, as our website reads. PPGGNY offers a unique opportunity for people and organizations with various missions, goals, and supporters to share, collaborate, and grow. 
 
We have also been focusing on defining and refining what it means to be a member of PPGGNY in this new world order. After much deliberation, we have decided that membership will be reduced to $300 per person and will include all webinars. If we are lucky enough to have in-person session later next year, those will be charged as usual; all webinars, however, will be included in Membership.
 
PPGGNY recognizes that budget cuts, job furloughs, and the like may make it difficult for some of you to pay for membership, even at the reduced rate. We are therefore committed to providing scholarships to anyone who needs it so that you can still stay part of our community. Scholarship forms are available on the website.  We also happily accept philanthropic donations to help ensure that we have sufficient funds to meet all those who need it.
 
We look forward to connecting with everyone on our zoom conversation on June 25, 2020. John Bacon and a panel of experts will discuss what they look for in hiring planned giving professionals. Following they panel, we plan to break out into groups to provide some casual networking opportunities — continuing our community in this virtual world.
 
Finally, a big thank you to the PPGGNY Executive Committee, Diversity and Inclusion Task Force, and Board for helping PPGGNY address the many critical issues we are facing these days. As PPGGNY members we must support each other and stand united, as we try to create a more peaceful and just society. We are better together and stronger when we lead with love and stand up for injustice on all fronts.

Thank you,
Stacy
