Excellence in Giving believes in the power of partnership. We work closely with attorneys and financial advisors to serve families with significant philanthropic activities. Our advice is coordinated and consistent with the client’s overall financial plan and objectives. Our Giving Game Plan™ coordinates with the strategy designed by professional advisors. As a fee-only service provider, we are free from conflicts of interest.
Excellence in Giving focuses exclusively on maximizing the returns for their clients’ philanthropic portfolio, not advising clients on the best giving vehicle or tax-related plan.
