When advisors are clear about their own view of generosity vs. philanthropy, they can confidently help clients move their charitable giving from "tipping" to investing. This session explores a fresh view of generosity, then a lively conversation centered on three questions will take place: "Under what conditions does an advisor’s understanding of generosity precede a conversation about philanthropy?" "Why is gratitude such a powerful motivator for a client’s philanthropy?" and, "When is the right time to have a conversation about gratitude with clients?" This breakout offers fresh ideas to move clients to the next level of philanthropy.
