Planned Giving Advisory Council (PGAC) Membership
The PGAC is comprised of a group of talented charitable gift and estate planning professionals, one archdiocesan parish priest, two lay Catholic Legacy Society members, the Executive Director of the Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas and the Associate Director-Planned Giving of the Office of Stewardship and Development. Non-archdiocesan members serve for a term of three years. Meetings are held four times per year. The location will vary.

PGAC members are practicing Catholics residing within the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. They desire to serve the Church and the local Archdiocese with their expertise, volunteer their time and advice to the Office of Stewardship and Development, and are good stewards of their own financial resources.
