  • Continue Working with Your Trusted Professional Advisors

Your trusted legal, tax, and financial advisors have helped you get to where you are today – in a position to give back. We want to work with your current advisors to carry out the most beneficial and tax-efficient plan for you. If desired, we welcome the inclusion of your trusted professionals in your charitable giving plan design and implementation.

  • Plan Your Giving Strategies in Advance

At Crewe Foundation Services, we are here to help you and your professional advisor design and craft the perfect plan for your family to accomplish your philanthropic goals. Everyone has a unique situation, so we custom-tailor each plan for you based on your needs and goals. Our professional staff will put decades of experience to work in the design and implementation of your planned gifts.

  • Crewe Foundation Services does not have custodian assets.  

Your professional investment advisor can continue in their role as your foundation’s financial advisor.  We welcome the opportunity to work with your trusted professionals.  If you do not have an investment advisor that you would like to appoint, we can help by recommending a qualified professional.
