June 1 - 3, 2011
Westin South Coast Plaza
Costa Mesa, CA

Title Sponsor

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 2011 Western Regional Planned Giving Conference and explore with our colleagues and our well-respected presenters the theme of Transforming Philanthropy: The Future of Gift Planning.
In keeping with the theme and the 20th anniversary celebration of this conference, the conference itself has been transformed.  In addition to thought-provoking keynote addresses and our three tracks of wide-ranging breakout session topics, we have included two new features: (1) a Primer exploring the fundamentals of various planned giving techniques, scheduled on Wednesday afternoon as a pre-conference event, and (2) with the generosity of our sponsors, a track of professional development breakout sessions that provide you with an additional learning opportunity.
We will be studying planned giving approaches that truly can transform philanthropy.  Join us June 1-3 in Costa Mesa for a tremendous opportunity to learn about planned giving or to sharpen your skills!

Stephanie C. Buckley and Mary V. O'Hare,
Conference Chairs
