It all started in 2007 with The Ultimate Quick Reference Planned Giving Pocket Guide — a handy 4 x 9 booklet originally conceived by Viken Mikaelian and John Foster (previously at Penn Planned Giving). The Pocket Guide is still going strong today and is published by PlannedGiving.Com. It has served as a practical tool for gift planners, major gifts officers, and students of philanthropy at major colleges and universities.
