Planned Giving Manager

Calculations and proposal software for all planned gifts

Planned Giving Manager (PGM) is comprehensive planned gift proposal software for your desktop and laptop. When you purchase PGM, you also get access to PGM Anywhere, our web-based planned giving proposal software for use on tablets, laptops, and desktops.

Everything You Need

Planned Giving Manager (PGM) is the industry's leading planned gift illustration software. Why? Because PGM makes it easy for you to create the materials you need at every stage of the gift planning process.

  • Introduce planned gift concepts and benefits in an initial conversation with simple charts, attractive diagrams, and concise gift descriptions written in plain English.
  • As the gift planning progresses, create detailed analyses, as needed, to satisfy the most demanding donor or advisor.
  • When your donor completes a planned gift, create documents that substantiate the donor’s deduction and summarize the gift. Even create an official gift acknowledgement letter.

Planned Giving Manager makes us seem like professionals...

When we’re interfacing with development colleagues, and certainly when we’re meeting with donors, it’s nice to have the templates and University of Denver branding consistent throughout. When you’re able to show them the numbers with a lot of certainty, tax rates and payouts, it makes the donor more comfortable that we have been doing this for a while and that we know what we are doing.”

Director of Development, Gift Planning
