Hands Holding Heart

Charitable Planning

AAF Wealth Management plays a crucial role in assisting philanthropic clients with their charitable endeavors. Here are some ways in which we provide support: 

Strategic Charitable Planning: AAF Wealth Management works closely with philanthropic clients to develop a comprehensive gifting strategy aligned with their values, goals, and financial situation. They help identify causes and organizations that match your interests, assess the impact of their donations, and create a long-term plan for charitable giving. 

Tax Optimization: We collaborate with AAFCPAs’ Tax Partners and Tax Attorneys to assist clients in optimizing their tax positions by leveraging various charitable giving strategies. We ensure that donations are structured in a way that maximizes tax deductions while complying with applicable tax laws and regulations. This may involve setting up donor-advised funds, family foundations, or charitable trusts to achieve tax efficiency. 

Asset Management: Clients often have complex investment portfolios. We help manage and grow their assets while considering philanthropic objectives. We ensure that the investments are aligned with the client’s values and provide sustainable returns to support ongoing charitable commitments. 

Legacy Planning: We support clients in developing a legacy plan that ensures their philanthropic work continues beyond their lifetime. We assist in setting up structures like family foundations or endowments, establishing governance guidelines, and specifying the intended use of funds. This enables the client’s philanthropic values to be upheld and managed by future generations. 

Overall, AAF Wealth Management & AAFCPAs bring broad expertise in financial planning, taxation, investment management, and philanthropy to provide comprehensive guidance and support to philanthropic clients. We help clients make more informed decisions, optimize their philanthropic impact, and ensure their giving aligns with their broader financial goals. 

We know that finding the right wealth advisor is a highly personal process. We take the time to learn about your unique philanthropic requirements and answer your questions, so you feel confident in our abilities to enhance the effectiveness and impact of your philanthropic endeavors.
