Differentiate your business

For Advisors

Why philanthropy?

Nearly half of high-net-worth donors aren’t using tax-savvy methods that could help them give more.1 Don’t miss the opportunity to position yourself as a go-to expert for your clients by having the charitable conversation.

By incorporating charitable planning, you can:

  • Maximize the impact of your clients’ giving
  • Reinforce the breadth of your wealth management expertise
  • Deepen client relationships and establish new ones
  • Engage the next generation
