On behalf of SoCalCGP, we extend a warm thank you for attending the 2023 WRPCG. We were thrilled to have you join us and we hope that you found the event valuable and informative.

Our sponsors, keynote speakers, and session presenters made it all the more special, and we are grateful for your support and expertise. The insights that were shared will greatly benefit our community.

Our attendees make this conference worth having, and we were glad you were there! Thank you for taking time to attend our event. We truly appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you in 2024!


Over the past 30+, the Western Regional Planned Giving Conference (WRPGC) has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the most stimulating and worthwhile educational opportunities for gift planners and allied professionals. Attendees select their sessions from three tracks, including advanced charitable gift planning techniques, best practices in nonprofit websites, and leadership strategies for inculcating diversity in our organizations. There’s something for everyone.

After a successful conference last year, we are excited to return in-person once again. As one of the largest regional planned giving conferences in the country, this annual gathering of non-profit gift planners and allied professionals is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for you to connect with key decision-makers and gift planning leaders across Southern California and the Western United States. Let’s make 2023 an even bigger success - join us on May 16-18, 2023 at the Westin South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa!
