Many of your clients are charitably inclined but need help aligning their resources, priorities, and philosophy. As a financial advisor, you are uniquely positioned to counsel clients as they determine what, when, and how to give to charitable organizations. By analyzing each client’s unique situation, you can identify opportunities and model outcomes in order to optimize the impact of charitable gifts.

This checklist helps you guide your clients as they consider and implement a charitable giving strategy. It covers:

  • Philanthropic motivations and goals
  • Cash flow considerations
  • Asset selection when funding gifts
  • Charitable giving vehicles
  • Tax planning and deductibility
