Klein Wealth Management provides enhanced services for charitable giving and private foundations. The accumulation of wealth quite often creates a desire to share it, to give back, often through contributions of time and resources to a foundation. Establishing a philanthropic legacy is a major accomplishment in any person’s life. The greater the philanthropic vision, the greater the complexities surrounding its realization—and the more important the details become. Philanthropy is a core capability at Klein Wealth Management. We encourage the “professionalization of giving” by helping you do well by doing good. We work collaboratively to find the most effective ways to establish your legacy through charitable giving so that the people and causes that are important to you receive the greatest benefit.
