The PCA Foundation Adds Senior Gifts Officer

The PCA Foundation announced today that Greg Mattox has been hired to serve as Senior Director of Major and Planned Gifts. This addition to the senior leadership team is the result of the rapid growth of the Foundation over the past five years as well as increased volume of complex gifts. 

As Senior Director of Major and Planned Gifts, Mattox is tasked with assisting donors who make outright and deferred gifts of public stock, S corporation stock, partnership and LLC shares, and other privately-owned business interests, real estate, and other non-cash assets, as well as cash, to donor-advised funds or trusts.  From these funds and trusts the donors recommend grants to their local churches, PCA agencies, and other qualified charitable organizations. Mattox will advise donors, financial advisors, and church leaders on the tax and charitable benefits of different gift approaches, as well as the more secure income for donors and their families that some gifts can provide.

“Greg brings the experience and expertise our donors need as they consider how best to steward the wealth that the love of Christ has prompted them to give away,” said Tim Townsend, president of the PCA Foundation. “Adding Greg to our team enables us to become even more relational and responsive which are at the core of our service.”

Mattox is a licensed California attorney and has served clients as an estate planning attorney in Palm Desert, California. He most recently served as a gift officer with The Salvation Army and Scripps Health, a large nonprofit health system in San Diego. He has nearly two decades of experience in development and estate planning and has helped donors gift approximately $250 million in outright and estate gifts. 

Mr. Mattox earned a law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. Greg also has a master’s in business administration degree from Western Governors University and a bachelor’s degree in history and political science from the University of California, San Diego. Greg is married, father to five children, and serves as a ruling elder at Providence Presbyterian Church. 

“I feel extremely privileged to work with donors and donor families as they support their local church, PCA agencies, and other Christian ministries,” said Mattox. “My connection with a donor or donor family may be for a single day or short call, or it could be over the span of many years and be a relationship with multiple generations. Working with the PCA Foundation, donors also can make gifts they never thought could be possible, and I enjoy being part of this learning and educational process.”
