ACGA Endowment Campaign - Securing the Future
The ACGA Board of directors is actively involved in a $500,000 campaign to create a general endowment fund to ensure its future ability to provide sound suggested gift annuity rates, quality training, and advocacy for appropriate consumer protections. In order to seed this endowment, the Board has set a goal of 100% participation by its volunteer members and initial gifts totaling $50,000. Significant progress has been made and the Board is close to 100% participation and over 65% of the way towards achieving the $50,000 milestone.
In addition to the general endowment campaign, the ACGA Board has set a goal to raise the Terry L. Simmons Philanthropic Endowment Fund to $150,000. This fund provides scholarships for new and aspiring gift planners to the ACGA’s biennial conference, and honors Terry L. Simmons, author of the Philanthropy Protection Act of 1995, and a former ACGA board member. Gifts and pledges to date total just over $116,000. We are well on our way and thankful for this support honoring the legacy and work of one of the greats in the gift planning field.
