We are better together (Even when we are apart)

PPGGNY is here for our Members and to show our commitment we are offering a series of Virtual Career sessions. The current health crisis has turned our world upside down. Let’s take care of ourselves both physically and professionally. Use this time for your benefit and join us as we explore our personal professional development!

Members may access the full version of The Planner - October 2020 in the Members Only section of the website.

From the President


Amidst the crisp fall breezes, we are also surrounded by political, social, economic, health, job, and other uncertainties.

But, as the late, great Maya Angelou stated, referring to another period in our country's complicated and tumultuous history, “We’ve been through the worst of times and despite the hardships, we always come out on the other side, stronger than before.”

Despite all the flux, PPGGNY has not wavered in its dedication to our members and the planned giving community. We are excited to share that the board had its first working session with our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Consultant, Jennifer Rutledge from Delphi Consultants. We stand committed to advancing our goal of meaningfully diversifying and expanding PPGGNY’s leadership and membership. More to come on that.

Our calendar is filling up too, with programming through the winter. Please join us on Wednesday, October 21, for a networking/career seminar: Peer-to-Peer Asking Works! A volunteer’s journey to build a planned giving pipeline of more than 4,000 donors with Dianne Belk. We encourage you to invite colleagues and friends – from planned giving and beyond – who may benefit from this broad topic.

We have two amazing education seminars scheduled in November: On Wednesday, November 18, Bill Samers will present the second PPGGNY University webinar: All About the Planned Giving Ask. On Thursday, November 19, Edie Matulka will present Lessons Learned from Planned Giving Audits. And save December 16 for John Tidd!

Finally, as a reminder, membership to PPGGNY includes all webinars for the year. Please consider joining if you have not done so already. As I have repeated throughout, if you are having challenges (due to furloughs, layoffs, or budget cuts) let us know and we will provide a scholarship.
We want to stay connected so that we will all be together now, and when we come “out the other side, stronger than before."


All my best,


Stacy Sulman, JD
PPGGNY President
