CAGP Toronto

A better world through charitable giving.


The Canadian Association of Gift Planners is the only organization in Canada that brings together charitable representatives with donor advisors in one professional association. Among our fundraising, legal and financial peers, we are looked to as the experts in strategic charitable gift planning.

The GTA Chapter is dedicated to advancing charitable gift planning through professional development and social networking events. We bring together local fundraisers and donor advisors to connect and share knowledge of current issues in gift planning.

  • We welcome CAGP members from Peel, Toronto, Durham, York, Simcoe and Northern Ontario.
  • We host educational sessions, where our members network and learn from a variety of expert speakers in the field.
  • We offer local members (both new to the field and experienced) the opportunity to connect through our unique Mentoring Programs and Social Events.
  • We strive to raise Community Awareness of legacy giving with CAGP members, professional associations and the public across the GTA community.
  • Our Chapter is run by a dedicated group of volunteers. We encourage you to meet our Executive Committee by getting involved in one of our many committees. Join us!
