Your Life Priorities: Philanthropy

Share more than your wealth — share your compassion.

Philanthropy can be as empowering for the giver as it is for the recipient. Not only does it allow us to engage with others in meaningful, life-changing ways, it can serve as the impetus that propels our children to be more empathetic and selfless adults.

Make philanthropy a centerpiece of your wealth plan.

For some families, considerable wealth unlocks a unique opportunity to make an even greater charitable impact through a private foundation. While more complex to administer, foundations provide a tremendous means of focusing your charitable efforts as well as engaging the next generation in supporting mission driven institutions. Our Foundations & Endowments Specialty Practice offers consultative strategic guidance on all aspects of establishing and administering your family foundation.
