Thank you sponsors!

MACGP is pleased to be the leading educational resource for planned giving in the greater Kansas City metropolitan region since 1987.  Planned giving – or charitable gift planning – has become increasingly important to the success of nonprofit organizations and the philanthropists who support them. Our programming is designed to bring together both the non-profit professionals and their for-profit counterparts to create a dynamic planned giving partnership, best positioned to benefit both the donor and their philanthropic intent. We are proud of our unique niche of bringing together the professional and philanthropic communities.
