We help individuals decide what role philanthropy could play in their lives and what charitable legacy they want to leave to their families and to their community. We work with clients to craft customized strategies to implement their goals, including the establishment of charitable trusts and foundations.
We provide private foundations with comprehensive services, including assistance with formulating mission statements and coordinating grant solicitation/review and investment management. We assist with record keeping, tax and regulatory compliance, and we provide ongoing legal and operational advice.
Businesses look to us to assist them in analyzing the benefits of developing a strategic philanthropic presence. We then work with these clients to design and implement a customized charitable strategy, including establishing corporate foundations, helping businesses find effective nonprofit partners, and providing a full array of regulatory compliance and foundation management services.
