Professional Development Roadmap


The CAGP Professional Development Roadmap for Gift Planners was created as a guide for gift planners and fundraisers alike to help their journey to becoming a successful charitable gift planner. The roadmap serves to identify, by years of relevant experience, the array of training courses, professional development, networking opportunities, products and services provided by CAGP to its members in support of their development as a professional. 

The National Education Committee has also developed the Competency Framework for Charity-Based Gift Planners, which serves as a checklist to identify those skills the user may already have and those they wish to pursue as they decide on future professional development opportunities.

CAGP has always been an invaluable resource to me, especially when I started to do more planned giving work with donors.  The specialized courses, annual conferences and webinars, as well as education sessions in my local Chapter continue to give me the tools I need to be successful." - Marisa Barlas, Senior Development Officer, Gift Planning, York University
