Who We Are & What We Do


CAGP is the premier organization for fundraisers and professional advisors, lawyers, financial advisors and accountants to network, share ideas, and develop their knowledge of current issues relating to gift planning.


The Niagara Golden Horseshoe Chapter hosts educational meetings annually for members to connect with their colleagues and hear from expert speakers. All interested are welcome to attend our meetings, designed to help you serve your donors or clients better.

Will Power Campaign

(formerly Leave a Legacy)

Our Chapter proudly piloted the new CAGP campaign, Will Power. Will Power launched nationally in 2021 and replaces LEAVE A LEGACY™. We are here to support you should you join this broad-based marketing and engagement program. Will Power assists charities and advisors in promoting planned gifts to donors and clients. You can learn more about becoming a member of Will Power by visiting our national site. And remember - all partners of Will Power receive a complimentary annual CAGP membership!

CAGP Foundation 

We want to build a better world through strategic charitable giving. 

Your gift helps us to make a significant impact on philanthropy in Canada by expanding the scope and availability of the highest quality philanthropic education, developing knowledge, building awareness, creating connections and engaging in national dialogues. 


We encourage you to make a multi-year pledge to allow for the planning of a long-term sustainable program.
