MFA-P™ Designation

 

ACHIEVE THE MFA-P™ DESIGNATION AS A PHILANTHROPY SERVICES SPECIALIST

Become a certified professional in the evolving field of philanthropy. Build trusting relationships with your clients and help them make a difference in the world through charitable giving.

There is an emerging investment trend increasingly important to investors of all ages: strategic philanthropy. But few advisors deliver what clients want: how to integrate personal values with tax and financial plans. Now you can address this need by earning your MFA-P™ Designation.

The MFA-P™ has specialized professional credentials to enable high-value planning for individual or family legacies. In this dynamic program, learn to have highly satisfying conversations with clients sooner in your relationship, address their big fears: that gifts will not be used wisely or according to personal passions and wishes. Then, provide a consistent process for giving solutions with investments that are tax-efficient, during lifetime and as part of a personal or family legacy.

 

OBTAIN SPECIALIZED CREDENTIALS TO LEAD HIGH-VALUE CONVERSATIONS WITH CLIENTS ABOUT LEGACY PLANNING.

The program consists of three certificate courses:

Introduction to Strategic Philanthropy

Understanding the Charitable Sector

Integrating Giving with Client-Centric Planning

The third course in the program features exposure to practical case studies and strategies used by some of the most experienced charitable gift planners in the country.

The flexible program features personal instructional support and includes all materials to complete the course and testing requirements.  Time to be spent on the program varies with individuals, but an estimated 60 hours over a one-year period is the recommended study period.
