Take a few minutes to read this short article written specifically for you. It's how to gain the maximum marketing leverage for your business  from your membership in the PGDC!

Make sure your email addres is up to date

Do you have a new email address or have you changed companies? It's very easy to update your profile instead of creating a new account. Simply login and click My Profile on the top right corner of the PGDC site. You must be logged in to see the My Profile link. Can’t remember your password? Email and we’ll reset it for you, or use the “Request new password” link below the login box on the right of the PGDC.

Update your profile

From My Profile you can change your email address, password, update your biography and much more that will enhance your visibility to other members on the PGDC that may want to joint venture with you. 

Members often contact us asking for referrals to experts on various subjects. We typically direct them to "Community" and "Locate A Professional."  We recommend that you fill out your occupation, designations, and biography and add a profile picture. And DON’T FORGET to enter your address or at least your zip code. This is very important. Your zip code is what allows others to find you in your region.

If there is no occupation or designation choice for your profession, please let us know and we'll add it.

Once your member profile is updated be sure your privacy settings are set in Community setting (at the bottom of member profile form) so you will appear in the Member Directory. This information is ONLY available to PGDC members, not the general public.

Under My Newsletters, make sure you’ve selected to receive National News by email.

Now you are all set to receive the newsletters and help other members interested in philanthropy!

Making comments on content

This is the magic marketing bullet! When you make comments on content we post on the PGDC you light up on the site. Your screen name is listed with your comment where members can click on your name and send you a private email through our secure email form. And your email address is never shown or compromised in any way.

So that’s it. Update your information and enter the conversation on the site by making comments. Oh, by the way, one of the best ways to market yourself is to answer questions in the Forum under the Community link on the main menu.

Here’s an example of a news story that received a lot of comments.

Please contact if you have any questions.
