2019 Programs Update 

Endow America using Social Secharity is a campaign to educate Americans on how to make a significant impact in their communities and create a paradigm shift from Indebt America (with Government providing social services) to Endow America (with your favorite charity providing social services) using Social Secharity.  Materials and a website are under construction.   This solution will shift America from $22 trillion in national debt to a $30 trillion endowment controlled at the local level by non-profit charitable organizations.  It can be accomplished based on the Great Wealth Transfer that is taking place now through 2061. 


Advancing the Profession of Philanthropic Planners "Philanthropic Planning – How it Benefits Your Clients and Their Community" powerpoint will build interest among the various advisors in your community to work with a professional philanthropic advisor or obtain a CAP® designation which distinguishes them as a professional philanthropic advisor.  The presentation is CE eligible for American College Professional Recertification credit, CFP, and insurance CE.  If you are interested in presenting in your community, please become a Council member and we’ll send you the entire package including handouts, outlines, marketing paragraph, etc.  Sharing the presentation with your colleagues helps you further our professional awareness program.      CLICK HERE FOR A WINDOWS MEDIA FILE SLIDESHOW.   To request the powerpoint slides and speaker guidelines, email


Council of Advisors in Philanthropy - Still accepting founding members, the Council is a member organization including professional philanthropic advisors who can assist the public in stewarding the great wealth transfer occurring at this time in our country.  The Council provides presentations to attract qualified individuals into the profession and to educate Americans about charitable giving and the profession of philanthropic advisor.  


Scholarship program - At the present time we support the CAP® designation and will award scholarships based on donations earmarked for that purpose.   Scholarship Program Statistics:

  • 114 scholarships have been awarded between 2010-2018
  •  65 are Female; 49 are Male
  • 51 Advisors; 60 Nonprofit Executives including 30 from Community Foundations

According to the results of a CAP survey sponsored by the Foundation, at least $600,000 in additional charitable dollars have been raised per CAP graduate since the start of the designation only 11 years ago.   Think about this --  there are currently approx. 1,200 CAPS X $600,000 is $720 million in increased charitable giving based on a little more than a decade of the profession.    If you know a funder that can make a $10,000 contribution resulting in 20 CAP scholarships, their gift could potentially increase charitable giving by at least $12,000,000!   

We invite you to watch scholarship recipients, Katie Zobel and Kristin Leutz of the Community Foundation of Western Mass discuss how the CAP® designation impacted their success  and  how they utilize their CAP® designations at Community Foundation. 

 Phil Cubeta, Chair in Philanthropy at The American College wrote to the AiP Foundation board: "Your scholarships make a real difference in helping certain students make the decision to enroll. Those who need education the most often do not have the funds to get it. Often, if they work for a nonprofit, they are not reimbursed. So the scholarships have helped enormously, particularly in attracting nonprofit students.” 

Philanthropy touches every major social issue we face. We need informed, skilled, thoughtful philanthropic leaders and change agents now and in the future to address our greatest challenges  As government revenues decline and the needs of the less fortunate in our communities increase, the wise investment of every dollar of limited philanthropic capital for social change becomes even more important."  ~  Doris Buffet
