At KWM Wealth Advisory, we understand a life well lived means more than providing for your own financial future. It is also about making a difference by supporting the causes that are most important to you. That is why we work with clients to incorporate their charitable and philanthropic planning goals as part of their overall investment plan.

While the intrinsic benefits of giving to causes you care about are vast and immeasurable, there are also financial benefits to making charitable donations. We help you identify strategies to maximize the benefits to your chosen charities as well as to your portfolio and estate, which may include:

  • Establishing a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)
  • Making a gift of appreciated securities
  • Determining optimal timing based on your income, retirement, tax situation, and estate planning goals
  • Naming a charity as a beneficiary to investment accounts and/or retirement plans
  • Making charitable gifts during your lifetime
  • Implementing a charitable remainder trust (CRT) or a Charitable Lead Trust (CLT)
  • Donating IRA assets

Stifel Independent Advisors, LLC and its associates do not provide legal advice. You should consult with your legal advisor regarding your particular situation.

Many people find that having an independent advisor can provide financial confidence — by clarifying economic complexity, navigating through turbulent markets, and providing a buffer between them and the market.
