Interested in Volunteering?

There are many opportunities to volunteer with MGPA! Check out more information here.


Dear Fellow Members of Minnesota Gift Planning Association,

Right now, things change on a minute-by-minute basis. We wake up each morning wondering, “What new twists and turns will emerge today?” In a sea of change, we want you to know that Minnesota Gift Planning Association is a constant in your life. Our members count on us for high-quality educational programming and meaningful networking. We are committed to bringing that to you no matter what!

The brand-new Virtual Task Force team is working swiftly to create a MGPA virtual experience. The team is made up of 15 dedicated volunteers from every one of our committees. Here is what we have in store for you:

Top-notch Virtual Education
We asked what topics are most important to you now and you told us. Based on your responses, we are developing a bi-monthly series of online webinars to teach you what you want to learn now. Many of you joined us for our first and second webinars, Next Level Crisis Communications with Casey Fuerst at Tic Tac Toe Marketing and Making the Case for Gift Planning Now featuring Craig Wruck. Watch your e-mail inbox for invitations to more on-line sessions from industry experts on topics like Distance Donor Relationships, CARES Act, and MORE!

Virtual Breakfast Meetings
You bring the bacon and coffee – we’ll bring the content. Our Program Committee has recruited a very impressive speaker line-up for 2020. Instead of getting together at Town & Country Club, we’ll be broadcasting them directly to your computer screen.

Virtual Member Happy Hours
We know you rely on MGPA for meaningful networking, so the Membership Committee will be hosting a member-only Virtual Happy Hour every other Thursday from 4-5pm. Relax and connect with your MGPA family. It’s a time to see your friends, share success stories, and get support from those you count on.

What about the Annual Conference?
We’re crossing our fingers and toes that the 2020 Annual Conference will still be held in person at Minneapolis Institute of Arts this October. That may not be possible, so we are exploring technology to bring you a virtual conference experience. Stay tuned for more developments on that.

How can you help?
Please consider joining one of the fun and vital MGPA committees. Do you enjoy event planning? Do you have a head for numbers? Do you like to teach gift planning? Do you like to mentor new gift planners? There are committees for all of those things and MORE. We value your talent and want to welcome you. Learn more and sign-up HERE!

Thank you for being a member! You’ve made us the largest and most active council in the nation! That’s no accident. We are a product of the outstanding professionals who have joined together to make Minnesota Planned Giving Council THE VERY BEST! We will get through this crisis together and come out stronger on the other side.

All my best,

Dana J. Holt, JD AEP® CAP®
MGPA Board Chair
