We help you assist your clients with giving

You work with successful people who want to give back to their community. We know how to help them do that.

Since 1994 we have been working side-by-side with local donors to help them make strategic charitable decisions that align with their values.  We deeply understand the nonprofit sector and community needs, so we can help our donors make thoughtful and impactful gifts.

We can be your partner in the philanthropic conversations you have with your clients — helping you extend your services with our charitable expertise and personalized giving vehicles.
