The Planned Giving Council of Broward County brings together nonprofit and for-profit professionals to network, exchange ideas and share in the knowledge to be gained from speakers known for their expertise in estate and tax planning, financial planning and charitable giving. It is an association for people whose work or interests include the developing, marketing and administering of charitable planned gifts.

We count among our esteemed members estate planners, tax attorneys, accountants, trust officers, financial advisors, insurance professionals, CPA’s and executive leaders and development team representatives of nonprofit organizations and institutions.

The Council meets five times per year at the Tower Club for breakfast featuring speakers on educational topics of interest to members and their guests. See our Programs page for our next scheduled meeting and RSVP information. Our website can also serve as a valuable planned giving resource offering links to a variety of resources and information on gift planning, federal regulations and changing tax laws affecting charitable gifts.
