“CAGP has been my key professional association since 1995. Over twenty years, my career moved from law to gift planning to more general fundraising and then consulting. CAGP has been a key part of my career development all along the way. Many of my long-term professional colleagues and friendships began through my involvement with CAGP. Thank you CAGP!” – Grant Monck, LL.B., Strategic Fundraising Consultant, Grant Monck Fundraising Consultant Services
