Maximize your client's community impact, now and forever

Some of the best opportunities to make charitable contributions occur when clients are making other major business, personal and financial decisions. The best time to consider planned giving options with clients may be when a will is written or revised, a business or other major asset is to be sold, retirement plans are made, or a substantial financial gift is received. Developing a charitable plan that satisfies your client’s financial and charitable needs is no small task. As a professional advisor, the opportunity you have to help your clients achieve their philanthropic goals is both a privilege and a challenge. Professional advisors in the legal, accounting, and financial sectors are often in a position to advise their clients about charitable giving though few specialize in just this area.

The Coastal Georgia Foundation can assist you and your client in structuring gifts that maximize tax savings, while establishing the enduring community legacy your client desires. As a team, we combine our expertise with yours to ensure that your client is able to make educated decisions when selecting from our full spectrum of options.
