President’s Message

Welcome to GPCNJ!

We are a diverse group of individuals with a passion for structuring philanthropy. We are gift-planning professionals from big non-profits, and the only development officer in a small non-profit. We are non-profit attorneys and accountants, and we are the attorneys, accountants and financial planners for philanthropists. We are development directors and trust officers, board members and trustees, volunteers and donors, fundraisers, and other allied professionals and donor advisors.

When we get together, the magic happens. Gifts happen, and lives are changed. We learn from each other and we make a difference in this world. And we have fun doing it.

Through our educational events and networking sessions, we forge relationships that go beyond the confines of our regular meetings. Please join us, and feel free to contact me personally to learn more.

— Gregory Ellmer
President, GPCNJ
