Thank you for showing an interest in learning more about Community Foundations and how we can help you help your clients’ giving go further. You know your clients. We know philanthropy. Together we can create a giving plan that will best suit your clients' needs.
September is Wills Month. If your client is considering leaving a gift in their will, their local Community Foundation can help you make it a lasting legacy for their community. With our smarter giving model, gifts can be continuously invested to grow into ongoing funding sources.

Many people want to give or at least want to make a difference. Conversations about how they can have an impact and do good with their money are often warm and very rewarding ones. It is an opportunity for you to connect with your clients’ core aspirations and values and to really build a long term relationship with them.
Community Foundations can help to add significant value to your client relationships by offering professional philanthropic expertise to complement your existing skill sets and help you provide a more holistic financial planning approach.
"I'm a really proud advocate for Community Foundations. They can be a really effective and efficient way to execute a client's philanthropic strategy because they have all the audit, governance and management structures already in place. And, as not-for-profits, they maximise returns to community."
We work in partnership with you, either in the background, supporting you to have the conversation with your clients about developing a philanthropic plan; or we can offer advice directly. However you prefer, we will always respect and work within the relationships you have established. Your role will be to provide counsel on legacy giving and maintaining the overall wealth planning relationship.
“I really enjoy talking to my clients about giving. I find most often it’s a warm conversation motivated by their desire to impact the community and their passion for a cause. Many people are also seeking reassurance that their wealth will be used wisely”
