A Brief History of the Philanthropic Planning Group of Greater New York

The Philanthropic Planning Group of Greater New York is one of the first and oldest continuously operating 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations of its kind in the U.S. The original organization was established to provide continuing education to those in the field of charitable gift planning and in allied professions following enactment of the Tax Reform Act of 1969.

In 1971, three fund-raising professionals met to discuss the potential of planned giving and to identify colleagues in the field. In November 1972, the first organizational meeting of the Deferred Giving Group took place at Pace University with twenty-two individuals in attendance. In January 1973, the first luncheon meeting was held at the Pratt Manhattan Center.

To expand communication, education, and coordination among the various planned giving groups in the U.S., the Deferred Giving Group joined with other local councils to form the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning (PPP), now known as the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (NACGP).

In 2001, PGGGNY established itself as an independent organization, remaining committed partners with NACGP in support of the planned giving community.

In May 2009, PGGGNY announced a name change in order to better focus on changes in the industry, especially as they pertain to efforts to promote human welfare— philanthropy. The Philanthropic Planning Group of Greater New York became PPGGNY– a new focus with a familiar sounding acronym.

PPGGNY provides eight monthly luncheons and seminars, and our annual event in May, Planned Giving Day New York, is the premier event in the New York metro area for Planned Giving and Major Gift professionals.

With the talents and energies of its members, the Philanthropic Planning Group of Greater New York has grown to nearly 300 members.
