Professional Advisor Resources


According to the 2018 U.S. Trust Study of The Philanthropic Conversation, professional advisors who talk to their clients about their charitable goals:

• receive 60% more referrals from clients.

• have deeper relationships with 74% of their clients.

Webinar Series

Once a month, we host an educational webinar for professional advisors. By supporting you through education on the best gifting strategies, you can deepen your relationship with your clients and help maximize giving while potentially reducing taxes for them.
