"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." - Anne Frank

Engaging in Philanthropy

Significant wealth gives families the ability to improve the world in lasting, meaningful ways. We have found that giving is more personal and more rewarding when you align your charitable efforts with your passions and can enjoy tangible results from your generosity.

How do I move from unstructured giving to a more deliberate philanthropy approach?

Your Hawthorn advisors work closely with you to clarify your objectives and design a philanthropic plan that meets your goals. Your plan can combine current gifts with a multi-generational program that carries your legacy well into the future. Hawthorn is experienced in administering foundations and endowments and can manage the disbursement of major gifts, while also offering ongoing guidance. We can even help you determine how much wealth is needed to sustain your family’s continued financial independence so you can then begin to think strategically about how your excess wealth can influence areas that are important to you and to society.
