A Message from the Founder of CGF
The Charitable Giving Foundation (CGF) has been making a difference since 1974 (over 40 years). Our concept stems from a deep seeded responsibility to leave this world a better place.

Our innovative programs are designed to help improve the ways charities (Causes) are funded, create customer loyalty for Businesses, and allow committed citizens (CAs) to help Causes and receive compensation for their efforts.

On 12/01/2017 we implemented our new mobile-friendly site. CGF programs have been refocused to maximize our giving potential to Causes, while simplifying the use of our programs for all involved. These new technologies include the ability to self-maintain your listings, unique links directly to your listing with tracking for your promotional efforts.  On behalf of our whole team... Thank you for considering our programs! 

—Together, we CAN make a difference!

How CGF Helps Raise Funds for Causes and Churches

The Charitable Giving Foundation has been instrumental in generating over one-hundred million dollars for Churches and Orgainizations using our Financial and Estate Planning Program.

  • Our Estate Planning Educational program costs nothing to your church or organization, or your invited guests.
  • Our Financial and Estate Planning Seminars can be viewed on-line at the viewers convenience.
  • All we need is your help in promotion by using a link we provide. See Free Registration
  • Watch our 90 second promotional video which can be promoted through your email marketing campaigns, on your website, social media and even during a Church service. Remember is only 90 Seconds! 
  • The promotional video invites individuals to a complementary (FREE no sales pitch) one hour online Financial Educational seminar.
  • The seminar includes a downloadable financial worksheet and complementary Financial Consultation with a qualified financial and estate planning attorney.
  • Again, there is NO sales pitch, however we will ask if they have considered including your Church or Organization in their financial plans.
