Help Those In Our Industry Now — And For Years To Come

One of the most generous ways you can give back to the industry you love is through a Legacy gift to the PCMA Foundation. Gifts of $5,000 or more can be given during one’s lifetime or deferred through a will, bequest or trust.

Donate a gift of $5,000 or more during your lifetime.

Planned Giving: Wills and Estate Plans

Champions of the PCMA Foundation who are passionate about the industry’s future, include a gift to the Foundation in their will or estate plan. Doing this establishes a personal legacy that impacts the lives of many in this industry for years to come.

There are two types of Legacy Society membership based on the way you’d like to give:

  • Deferred Gift: A gift through a will, bequest or trust where the PCMA Foundation is named as a beneficiary.
  • Lifetime Gift: A gift given over the course of one’s lifetime, $5,000 over 5 years. Visit this page to join.

The best way to give is to make a written pledge. This can simply be a letter written in your own words and sent to the PCMA Foundation along with a Declaration of Intent. It is then your responsibility to set your affairs in order so that your pledge will be fulfilled.

Belief that you are funding a passionate foundation that will promote professional excellence, provide opportunities and create a new generation of event organizers around the world.

In addition to establishing your legacy which will impacts the lives of many in this industry for years to come, you will also receive these benefits:

  • Listed or featured in Convene magazine, the PCMA website and the Foundation booth area at the PCMA Convening Leaders annual event
  • Networking events exclusively for the Legacy Society with PCMA leadership and other industry leaders
  • A donor pin and ribbon signifying your status at PCMA events
