PGCNI celebrated the campaign’s anniversary and honored inaugural contributors at a luncheon on Jan. 12 in Fort Wayne, Ind. Bob Remington, Trine Vice President for University Development, attended the luncheon to receive the university’s honor.
PGCNI president Zis Milentis presented plaques to honored organizations, and Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry complimented honorees for their philanthropic contributions. Tanya Howe Johnson, president of Partnership for Philanthropic Planning, PGCNI’s parent organization, also spoke.
PGCNI partners with nonprofit agencies and other volunteers and organizations in northeast Indiana on the week-long campaign, which employs mass media to inspire individuals to make charitable bequests in their wills. Estimated bequests to nonprofit organizations generated by the campaign since its inception exceed 1,000.
The organization brings together gift planning professionals to provide a forum for the discussion of planned giving issues, advance the expertise of its members, provide networking and support and inform members of legislative issues impacting charitable giving.
