About the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning
Originally created in 1988 as the National Committee on Planned Giving (NCPG), the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning (PPP) is a 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to help people and organizations create charitable giving experiences that are the most meaningful in
achieving both charitable mission and the philanthropic, financial, family and personal goals of the donor.
PPP achieves its mission through research, education, advocacy, community dialogue and the setting of standards and best practices in philanthropic planning. The Partnership strives to engage all constituents in the charitable gift planning process: planned giving and major gifts professionals, nonprofit managers and trustees, financial and estate planners, trust managers and administrators.
PPP helps maximize the value of charitable giving for nonprofit organizations and donors by helping fundraising professionals provide the most meaningful charitable giving experience for donors; helping financial planning professionals provide their clients with excellent advice on charitable giving and estate planning; and helping nonprofit managers and trustees better accomplish the missions of their organizations through meaningful philanthropic planning.
PPP is supported by 108 local councils and over 10,000 individual and council members, as well as charities, associations and business organizations that support the mission of charitable giving made most meaningful.
