Mid-America Planned Giving Council

Helping You Make a Difference


Help Sponsor A Scholarship

Any donation made to the scholarships program will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $3,000, and are tax-deductible for you. And…if we raise enough funds by June 30, we could possibly send TWO members to the  National Association of Charitable Gift Planners Conference in Baltimore!

In 2015, when an active member’s organization could not afford local MAPGC dues – another member helped out. From that act of kindness, an idea grew. What could MAPGC do to help our members, especially those new to the profession, or in new a gift planning position, or an allied professional who was just starting out?

In response, MAPGC therefore has decided to launch three new scholarships in 2018:
• A one-year local membership for a new member.
• Underwritten attendance for one member to MAPGC’s signature annual event, Building Blocks Planned Giving Conference.
• Underwritten attendance for one MAPGC member to the annual National Association of Charitable Gift Planners Conference.

Scholarship expenses for this first year will be underwritten by long-time MAPGC member, Pamela Miller and her husband Michael Cummings, who have also agreed to underwrite a matching gift challenge to others who wish to help with these scholarship costs.
