Dear Fellow Members of Minnesota Planned Giving Council,

 

Marie Ruzek

Welcome! I’m so excited that you found your way to the MPGC welcome page. As the Chair of MPGC and having co-led the council’s recent strategic planning process and launched the new plan, I’ve been thinking lot about our value proposition over the last year or so. And it’s really simple. It’s our people.

We have THE BEST people involved in the council. This is different than our mission, which we deliver on with our signature education programs, Brisk Walk Through The Basics Of Planned Giving, Leave a Legacy at Lunch web series, and most prominent, the Annual Conference. We consistently deliver high quality education year after year. How does this happen? Volunteers like you are behind it all. Volunteers take the initiative, coordinate schedules, make the calls, plan the events, ideate, and invite speakers, prospective members, and guests to join us. We come for the education sessions, but we show up for each other. This is a conscious decision to show up. Our people – our members and volunteers – are really our most valuable resource and why you, and anyone in the charitable planning arena, would want to join our vibrant community full of experts.  Moreover, these experts all share a trait in common – a helping spirit. Collaboration and kindness abound within MPGC. I’m proud of who we are and would love to welcome more folks into the fold. If you are not yet a member, please join now! If you are a member, I appreciate you!

Sincerely,

Marie Ruzek
