Let’s build your nonprofit’s
planned giving pipeline, together

Planned gifts are the key to your nonprofit’s long-term financial stability. Planned Giving Accelerator offers nonprofits an easy, accessible, and affordable program for building a successful Planned Giving program.


Easy, Accessible, and Affordable

Planned Giving Accelerator offers you an easy, accessible, and affordable path for building and sustaining proactive Planned Giving programs that yield big results.

In our year-long class, we meet virtually three times per month to create your Planned Giving strategy, identify and solicit your prospects, and start getting commitments.

Many of our members earn planned gift commitments within the first 90 days of starting the program.

You can too!

Exclusive Member Benefits

In addition to our virtual classes, members also get access to:

  • Sample fundraising letters, marketing materials, how-to’s, and other resources that can help you get your Planned Giving program off the ground quickly.
  • Monthly private podcasts that help guide your progress
  • A vetted, supportive community of nonprofit peers who network, share ideas—and really help each other.
  • Ongoing, personal advice from expert Planned Giving consultant, Tony Martignetti.

Why Planned Giving?

The average charitable bequest in the U.S. is about $35,000. Over time, those gifts add up and can serve as a foundation for long-term financial stability.

Planned Giving Accelerator is designed to help small- and mid-size nonprofits that have an established pool of individual donors but don’t have the means to hire expensive consultants.

For less than the cost of most nonprofit conferences, you’ll get everything you need to build your Planned Giving program!

Work With Tony Martignetti: The Planned Giving Evangelist

Tony Martignetti

I’ve been helping nonprofits since 1997.

That’s when I turned my back on practicing law and discovered Planned Giving.

After launching successful Planned Giving programs at Iona College and St. John’s University, I recognized I have a passion and talent for helping charities start successful and sustainable Planned Giving programs.

Since then, I’ve helped secure more than $100 million in new bequests for nonprofits – and have become the evangelist for Planned Giving.

I started Planned Giving Accelerator because I’m on a mission to help 1,000 U.S. nonprofits secure at least $3.5 billion in bequests.

Let’s achieve this ambitious goal together!

Planned Giving Accelerator is a wise investment for nonprofits seeking to amplify their training dollars.

The peer-to-peer learning and networking opportunities have been extremely valuable! Don’t waste another year wishing you had an effective planned gift program in place for your nonprofit.

After spending the last year uncertain how to proceed with a Planned Giving plan for our organization I am so grateful to have some guidance and direction!
I appreciate that Tony makes Planned Giving clear and simple by breaking things down into manageable pieces every week.

If your nonprofit is at least five years old, has individual donors, and is committed to creating more sustainable funding sources, you can succeed with Planned Giving Accelerator.
