Charitable Gift Planners of Nebraska is an association that improves our community through a network of non-profit financial development executives and professional advisors that serve donors. It does this by building awareness of charitable giving motivations and techniques, expertise and cooperation in the planning process, and ethical practice in charitable gift planning.

Founded in January of 1991 as the Planned Giving Officers of Nebraska, it merged in 1995 with the Planned Giving Council of Omaha and became the Planned Giving Council of Nebraska. Reflecting an evolution in how charitable and philanthropic work is done, it became the NebraskaPPP in 2009, and Charitable Gift Planners of Nebraska in 2016. It is formerly affiliated with the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners in Indianapolis.

The mission of the Charitable Gift Planners of Nebraska (CGPNE) is to provide the education, inspiration, and connections to build confidence, competence, and credibility in facilitating philanthropic gifts.

  1. Enhance their professional skills through knowledge and education,
  2. Build relationships with other partners in the charitable gift planning process,
  3. And serve as the network and professional resource for charitable gift and estate planners.

CGPNE typically meets on the first Fridays of the month for educational presentations and networking, and hosts Virtual Seminars from time to time. Members and guests are welcome at all of these programming events.
