Ways we work with professional advisors: 

Generational giving strategies

SVCF supports families in engaging the next generation of givers in a highly customized way. We work with each member of the family to identify what matters most to them through a unique values-seeking exercise, allowing individual voices to be heard. We can help families build consensus around their philanthropic goals with input from each family member. SVCF then works with the family to build out a giving plan that accurately reflects your values and motivations, while also considering different styles of giving. We can help your client create guiding principles, outline meaningful roles and coach on best practices, and build out a family giving strategy. 

Strategy and program design

Clearly defined goals and motivations are critical in making sustained and successful impact. SVCF can help to hone the goals of your client’s philanthropic activities and create mission and vision statements that ensure thoughtful philanthropy for years to come. We can work with your client to research and develop core components of your program or giving strategy. We can help develop a deeper understanding of your client’s field of interest or focus area by benchmarking key activities and approach against peers.
