Entrepreneurs & Charitable Intent –

By-Product or Driver?


Entrepreneurs & Charitable Intent -
By-Product or Driver?

Business owners are servant leaders by nature.  We as advisors often assume that it is the math, tax, or logic that drives our clients.  While this may be true, the servant leader is driven to give back either from a sense of duty or guilt from their success – though they would not realize it.  Knowing the strategies that increase the net dollars to a client while decreasing tax and increasing charitable giving are important, but helping the entrepreneur find what is impactful to them and their family is rewarding and drives success to an exit planner’s practice.  Refresh your knowledge of the strategies, methods to explain them, and ways to partner with your client to find meaning and a deeper engagement with you.


Learning Objectives:

  • Facilitate what is behind the conversation
  • Assets that may be gifted
  • Charitable organization requirements
  • Decrease taxes using charitable planning strategies
