Why Have Your Clients Give To The BHCF?

The Broadview Heights Community Foundation is here to help your clients achieve their philanthropic dreams.  As your clients’ trusted financial advisor, you have the responsibility to assist them in achieving their overall financial and personal goals and objectives as effectively as possible.  Part of their financial and personal goals may be achieving philanthropic goals.  Because the tax system offers special benefits to those who give to charitable causes, you can ensure that your clients receive the full benefits of their contributions while supporting a charitable cause they believe in.

Opportunities to assist your client’s charitable giving

The Broadview Heights Community Foundation works closely with financial, wealth, tax and legal advisors.  What’s important is that you remain their trusted advisor and are able to manage the charitable investments of your clients, regardless of the account size, when working with The Broadview Heights Community Foundation.

The best opportunity to assist your clients and help them maximize the personal benefits of charitable giving occurs at times when your clients are making major financial decisions – whether those are personal or business decisions.  Circumstances when a carefully planned gift can result in substantial benefits to your clients and family are when your clients are:

  • Planning his or her estate, including writing or revising their wills and/or revocable trust
  • Contemplating the sale of their business or other appreciated asset
  • Planning to retire
  • Expecting to receive a financial windfall on the death of a loved one
