The Partnership for Philanthropic Planning has announced that Tanya Howe Johnson, CAE, will step down from her position as president and CEO in April 2012 after over 20 years leading the organization. PPP’s individual and council members include more than 8,000 fundraisers and financial advisors involved in the process of helping donors plan and make major charitable gifts. A search process to find her successor will begin within the coming months.
I’ve had the privilege of working with Tanya over the years. I’ve always found her to be an ardent advocate for philanthropic planning and for the people who make it happen. This is something that surely helped convince The Nonprofit Times to twice name her one of the 50 most powerful and influential leaders in America’s nonprofit sector.
On a more personal note, I’m tremendously honored by Tanya’s endorsement of my book, Donor-Centered Planned Gift Marketing: “The number one training topic requested by PPP members is planned gift marketing. Michael Rosen answers that need with a well-organized approach, interesting anecdotes, a reader-friendly writing style, and a wealth of practical information.”
I thank Tanya for her support of my book and, more so, for her contributions to philanthropic planning.

That’s what Michael Rosen Says… What do you say?
