The Benefits of Partnership

Many donors now prefer to take a holistic approach to their wealth management — one that includes philanthropy as a part of their portfolio.

But charitable giving, with its dozens of giving vehicles, complex charitable assets, and ever-changing tax codes, can be complicated. Which is why a partnership with MCF can make it easy and efficient for both you and your clients.You can extend and deepen your relationships with clients, expand your services, and connect with multiple family members and generations. Your clients will be making more informed, effective decisions about their giving. And a greater impact on the world.

You focus on your expertise; we focus on ours. That's a win-win.
