Rosen, the President of ML Innovations, served on the PPPGP board from 2007 through 2012. During that time, he held a variety of positions including Chair of the Programming Committee, Vice President, President, and Immediate Past President.

During his tenure, PPPGP achieved a great deal despite the challenging economic situation. PPPGP’s annual conference saw a 33 percent increase in attendance. The number of members set a new record high. The budget was balanced and the cash reserve was enhanced while PPPGP held the line on costs to its members. Additional programs were initiated including roundtable meetings and a nationally recognized two-day fundamentals of planned giving workshop. 

PPPGP also added networking opportunities and a mentoring program. The organization also enhanced its website to include a jobs board and a regular ethics column. PPPGP also created the Legacy Award for Planned Giving Philanthropist of the Year. In addition, the organization changed its name from the Planned Giving Council of Greater Philadelphia to the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning of Greater Philadelphia to be more inclusive and more representative of the philanthropic planning process.

“We accomplished a tremendous amount, during my years on the board, despite difficult circumstances,” says Rosen. “We were successful because of the dedication and hard work of our volunteers. It is because of the passion of its volunteers that PPPGP continues to be one of the finest planned giving groups in the nation.”

Rosen says he looks forward to remaining involved with PPPGP. For example, he will be speaking at an upcoming program.

Rosen is available for speaking engagements for individual nonprofit organizations and professional association programs and conferences around the world. For more information, click here.
