Business Building through Philanthropy: How to Engage Clients in Planning their Charitable Giving


Event Info

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. Paul Nazareth from the Canadian Association of Gift Planners will share 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 personal legacy through asset-based giving and estate planning can help shape that vision. As an advisor, you will leave with:

  • A vehicle to more deeply engage with current clients and add value to them as a philanthropic advisor
  • How to grow your book of business and engage new clients through the philanthropic conversation and how CAGP South Sask can help
  • A better understanding of many new trends in philanthropy ( Donor Advised Funds, crowdfunding, social-impact movements etc.)
