Balfour Hamilton is thoroughly committed to philanthropy. To us, this means not only empowering the impact of a philanthropic gift, but helping the donors fully understand the significance of giving. We educate donors and their families about various types of philanthropic vehicles. Charitable planning is coordinated and incorporated into the donor’s overall financial and estate plan. Choosing the right vehicle for giving is very important. Each donor’s goals are considered to help maximize not only the social impact of the gift but also its benefits to the donor. Whether it’s providing anonymity or capitalizing on tax efficiencies that, in the end, can help you give even more, our approach, will help you define and work towards your philanthropic ambitions. We believe that true philanthropic planning embraces the convergence between financial management and giving opportunities to help our clients navigate the philanthropic landscape.
