Business Building & Giving

How to engage clients in the philanthropic conversation.

For many high net worth clients, charitable giving is something they are already doing, but, as always, planning is the key to multiplying both philanthropic impact and their personal fulfillment. Join us for business development insight into the current landscape of Canadian philanthropy and where your clients are already engaged in it. We will discuss and share case studies of not just tax benefits but more importantly how to have ‘The Philanthropic Conversation’ about how personal legacy through asset based giving and estate planning can help shape that vision.
