Originally created in 1988 as the National Committee on Planned Giving (NCPG), the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning (the Partnership) is a 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to help people and organizations create charitable giving experiences that are the most meaningful in achieving both charitable mission and the philanthropic, financial, family and personal goals of the donor.

The Partnership achieves its mission through research, education, advocacy, community dialogue, and the setting of standards and best practices. The Partnership strives to engage all constituents in the philanthropic planning process: planned giving and major gifts professionals, nonprofit managers and trustees, financial and estate planners, trust managers, and administrators.

The Partnership for Philanthropic Planning helps maximize the value of charitable giving for nonprofit organizations and donors by helping fundraising professionals provide the most meaningful charitable giving experience for donors; helping financial planning professionals provide their clients with excellent advice on charitable estate planning; and helping nonprofit managers and trustees better accomplish the missions of their organizations through meaningful philanthropic planning.

The Partnership for Philanthropic Planning is supported by 123 local councils and over 8,000 individual and council members, as well as charities, associations, and business organizations that support the mission of charitable giving made most meaningful.
