The 28th National Conference on Strategic Philanthropy will take place April 6 - 8, 2022 in Halifax, Nova Scotia SAVE THE DATE


Reimagining the future of philanthropy

CAGP’s 27th Conference on Strategic Philanthropy, which took place April 14-16, 2021, tackled some big themes, none more so than the rallying cry to ‘reimagine the future of philanthropy’. These messages deeply resonated with conference attendees, so much so that we were asked to make some of the information available publicly so that attendees could share the words with their leadership and board members. Today we are pleased to do so.

CAGP is the only organization that enables charitable gift planners and professional advisors to collaborate and network.

Each year, our members from coast to coast come together for an intensive 3-day national conference. With inspirational speakers, skilled presenters and facilitators, CAGP’s National Conference on Strategic Philanthropy provides an outstanding opportunity for delegates to learn, network, exchange experiences, and keep up-to-date on all new trends, issues and the latest practices in strategic charitable gift planning.


In Canada, there is no other conference which provides the depth of information specific to planned giving and strategic philanthropy.


Up-to-date legislation and tax benefits, current and emerging trends in philanthropy, new technology and tools are exclusively discussed at this conference.


Engage in provocative discussions designed to challenge your perceptions and to encourage you to reimagine the future.


Meet and exchange ideas with like-minded fundraisers, advisors and leaders in Canada’s charitable community.


Connect with vendors from across Canada to learn about products and services and the latest tools, technology and ideas.
