Planned Giving Initiative (PGI)


Launched under the direction of Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, the PGI helps parishes, schools and Catholic organizations build planned giving into their culture. Parishes have five years to put into place best practices that move them from Bronze to Diamond Planned Giving Status. By following CFNEK PGI guidelines parishes see measurable improvements in confirmed planned gifts.
