Throughout its modern history, charitable gift planning has supported the vision of countless donors and facilitated the transfer of billions of dollars to charitable causes. The trail blazers who refined and promoted the craft of gift planning have been instrumental in this philanthropy. 

The National Association of Charitable Gift Planners is pleased to recognize pioneers in the field of gift planning as members of the newly formed CGP Hall of Fame. Along with this distinction, CGP will present additional awards to recognize those whose work has impacted the organization and the field in substantive ways. All award recipients will be selected by a committee constructed annually and led by the Chair Elect of the CGP Board of Directors. Recipients will be honored on an annual basis at the National Conference on Philanthropic Planning.

CGP Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame is CGP’s highest honor. It recognizes those whose life's work has impacted charitable gift planning in profound and meaningful ways, advancing the mission of CGP and bringing credit to all the professions engaged in charitable planning.
