CCPG is going virtual in 2020-2021!

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and constantly shifting health guidelines, the CCPG Board has decided to host all Bi-Monthly Meetings for the 2020-2021 season virtually. Going virtual will allow CCPG to reach an expanded audience while keeping our members and speakers safe.

Miss networking with your colleagues? CCPG members now have the option to join an Affinity Group to connect with peers regularly throughout the year. Become a member to join an Affinity Group and receive discounts on Bi-Monthly programs.

More than ever, the Chicago Council on Planned Giving is committed to providing exceptional educational programming and networking opportunities, and until we can once again gather in person, we're proud to extend our reach virtually. If you're able to help by donating, we would be grateful for your support right now to sustain our excellence for the community that we serve.  CLICK HERE to support CCPG.
