About the webinar... 

Philanthropic Planning through the Various Stages of a Business

Participants will learn from the panelists how they have leveraged philanthropic planning and tools to maximize the impact of their giving before, during, and after the sale of a (possibly family-owned) business.

  • Long before the business is sold: As a means of building business value by winning the hearts and minds of employees and customers, while building goodwill in the community, via a corporate donor-advised fund
  • A few years or months before the business is sold, or directly afterward in the same tax year: As a means of managing assets, minimizing taxes, and maximizing the charitable resources available for the future
  • After the sale, as former owners: As a means of living a legacy by giving back to the community where the company’s employees and customers lived and worked, or following the next adventure of the former business owner as it relates to giving back

Attendees can expect to:

  1. Learn what business owners can do now to promote philanthropy (to attract and retain employees, as well as to be “conscious capitalists” and show your authentic self/charitable mission as a company)
  2. Learn what business owners can do to leave a legacy (donating assets before or after a sale) 
  3. Learn what owners might do regarding their own personal “next adventure” after the sale of the business
