About the program…
Research supports the critical role advisors have in their clients’ philanthropic decisions.  The estate planner working on a will, the financial advisor sorting through investment strategies and the family business advisor helping a family prepare for succession all have compelling reasons to raise the subject of philanthropy with their clients.  This will be a discussion that explores the giving behaviors of different generations and suggests ways that we can become initiators, engaging our clients in mutually beneficial, values-based estate planning.”
