FFTC offers a range of funds and other philanthropic solutions to help bring your client’s charitable vision to life.
Whether the goal is to address evolving community needs, support a favorite nonprofit in perpetuity or engage family in the experience of philanthropy, FFTC makes it easy to create an enduring legacy.
Donating business interests and real property can maximize tax benefits and increase impact in the community.
Our local Family Office Partners team supports family office staff with demonstrated expertise in philanthropy. We offer dedicated relationship management resources, turn-key services/support, and best-in-class tools and vehicles to meet the needs of family offices.
This program allows donors who maintain a minimum fund balance of $250,000 to recommend their own investment manager.
We accept a wide array of assets, such as appreciated stock and closely held business interests, to help your clients achieve their charitable goals.
Advantages of Donor Advised Funds
FFTC Donor Advised Funds are a cost-effective and tax-efficient alternative to private foundations, offering a convenient way to manage charitable giving.
For clients who already have private foundations, subsidiary foundations or large charitable funds, FFTC Custom Philanthropy Services can support their strategic, grantmaking and governance needs.
FFTC Cabinet of Professional Advisors
Professional advisors are invaluable partners for advancing philanthropy.
Some of our most trusted partners serve as members of our Cabinet of Professional Advisors. Selected annually for rolling three-year terms, our cabinet enjoys the benefit of networking and learning opportunities, while providing insight about the charitable products and services their clients value.
To be considered for membership, advisors generally have referred a client, worked with an FFTC client or otherwise engaged with FFTC.
