We offer two distinct services to entrepreneurs and businesses, based upon where they are in their lifecycle.
You have a thriving business. Perhaps you even already engage in philanthropy. But, how effective is your giving? Is it having the kind of community/world impact you would like? Is it inspiring to your customers? Is it engaging for your employees? Does it further your business mission? Is it focused and effective or is it scattered all over the place?
If you have questions such as these, we can help. We help businesses develop a philanthropic philosophy and mission. We help you align how you do philanthropy with your values and become strategic. We seek for efficiencies and leverage between marketing and philanthropy. We help you engage your employees and customers – even vendors.
We believe in sacrificial giving, but with business, impactful philanthropy does not have to “cost” the business. We can show you how, if your corporate vision can drive your philanthropic vision and contribute to your bottom line.
We would love to be able to help your business super-charge your philanthropy. Please complete the information to the right, click send and we will get back to you.
Watch below to see how Wayne McDaniel led McDaniel Knutsen into a corporate culture of philanthropy...
MW owned a radio station in a mid-western town. His cost basis was about $50,000 and he had a party interested in purchasing it for $1,000,000. Taxes on the transaction were going to be $304,000. We showed him how he could, using a combination of Charitable Remainder Trust and outright sale, avoid all income and capital gains taxes on the sale and create a retirement income while at the same time keeping a large portion of capital available for other endeavors.
There comes a time in every business owner’s life to transfer that business interest to the next generation of owners, whether family or otherwise. Income tax, capital gains tax, gift tax and estate tax are all considerations and can have a major impact on remaining wealth. Done wrong, taxes can easily consume 50% or more of your business value.
In almost every case, we can show you how you can sell all or most of your business tax-free using charitable tax planning strategies. These strategies can enable you to not only slash and avoid taxes, but result in greater net proceeds to you and your family, while simultaneously making a significant charitable gift. Charitable tax strategies done right can increase your financial security and retirement income, increase the likelihood of a successful transition of wealth to future generations and make enormous positive impact upon the causes that are important to you and help create and enduring legacy.
