Marty Dutch
First Foundation
Irvine, CA


"Advisors in Philanthropy is about engaging with professionals who focus on something bigger than themselves. AIP members care about growing/protecting wealth as well as the impact that philanthropy makes on clients and the community. In my role at First Foundation we see both sides of philanthropy; consulting with nonprofit organizations and helping families strategically plan and execute their giving. AIP provides me best practice learning for both sides of the table. It also elevates all of us personally and professionally while improving our community. I am proud of AIP’s impact on increasing philanthropic conversations between trusted advisors and clients while providing a network of professionals available to execute our clients’ highest goals."

"It is a privilege to network and serve with exceptional professionals who are devoted to mastering and promoting the highest standards in philanthropy.  As a member of AIP, I strive to live by my company’s tagline, “Live Abundantly.  Give Generously.”  My team and I are dedicated to educating and inspiring our clients to discover what true wealth* means to them, and how the gift of giving can add joy to their life and the lives of their loved ones."

 "My involvement in Advisors in Philanthropy (AiP) began with my involvement with Boston Philanthropic Advisors Roundtable (BPART), now AiP Boston.  BPART delivered valuable content to professionals and philanthropists from both the for-profit and non-profit sectors in Boston for over a decade.  AiP takes this up a notch, providing exposure to the best thinking in the space on a national level.  If you are serious about your philanthropic advisory practice, you owe it to yourself and your clients to get involved."

Schwab Charitable
Indianapolis, IN


 "I am honored to be a member of the Advisors in Philanthropy (AiP) Board, as it offers me the opportunity to work with advisors to better understand complex societal problems, help develop and implement innovative charitable giving solutions, and achieve social and environmental impact at scale.  I look forward to uniting financial advisors, lawyers, accountants, bankers, trust officers, philanthropic advisors, charitable organizations, foundations, donors, and wealth planners in a common goal: teaching and empowering donors to effectively direct their philanthropic resources consistent with their deepest values in a tax-smart way.  My goal is to help others maximize their philanthropic impact through the creation and development of personalized and strategic long-term charitable giving plans that fit into their overall wealth management." (0619-9LPH)



Past President

“My first introduction to AiP was in 2010, when I attended the Conference on Philanthropy in Chicago.  I immediately felt that this was a group I wanted to be a part of - people from all over the country who really believe that this is a great way to collaborate with other practitioners. These people all shared a passion for philanthropy and really want to do the best that they can as professionals and as trusted collaborators to serve their clients in this niche.  They want to make sure that they're helping to raise the philanthropic tides for both their clients and all charities throughout the country.”

"It is such a privilege to serve on the board of the International Association of Advisors in Philanthropy. As a philanthropic advisor, it provides me with incredible opportunities to learn from peers in the field to better serve my clients. The best way we can help donors give with meaning and purpose is for us as advisors to work together and learn from each other in a true spirit of inquiry. I come to this work as someone with a personal passion for public service in general, and philanthropy in particular. AiP is yet another way that I might contribute my learning and time to an issue I care deeply about."

"I am passionate about service and philanthropy.  It is important to me to be a member of the Board of Directors of International Association of Advisors in Philanthropy, an organization dedicated to ensuring that the highest levels of philanthropic planning and advising are provided to philanthropic individuals, families, and organizations throughout the world."


Nicole Kyauk, CAP®
San Francisco Foundation
San Francisco, CA


"Study after study shows that clients want to have a philanthropic conversation with their advisors - advisors think that they are having that conversation, but clients feel otherwise. AiP is well positioned to help advisors have these rewarding but sometimes complicated conversations. It's a dynamic group of diverse leaders that affords an opportunity to build your professional network and learn new strategies to become effective advisors in philanthropy." 


Jay Weisman, CAP®

"I’m delighted and honored to serve on the board of the International Association of Advisors in Philanthropy.  This is a great organization dedicated to helping advisors develop the knowledge, skills, and network they need to inspire and coach their clients as they give charitably and build family traditions.  This fits perfectly with the work we do at Legacy Philanthropy Group through our 3D Relationships programming.  By embracing the philanthropic conversation, wealth and other advisors are in position to make a profound and lasting impact on their practices, their clients and families, and their communities."
