Professional Financial Advisors

Are your clients doing estate planning? Exercising stock options? Managing an inheritance? We can help you help them achieve their charitable and financial goals.

We work with professional advisors, providing strategic counsel and helping integrate philanthropy into an estate plan, as you identify the best solutions for a client.

We help guide and make grants for charitable activities important to the Yellow Springs and Miami Township community and its residents.

Why Advisors Choose the YSCF

  1. You control the client relationship. We can extend the range of services you offer.
  2. We’re flexible about the types of assets we accept and the kinds of funds your clients can establish. We offer a variety of investment vehicles. See our Fees & Policies.
  3. We help your clients build philanthropic legacies. When donors set up permanent funds, they rest assured we’ll honor the charitable legacy in their names—and at the same time, keeping it current should circumstances change.
  4. Tax smart. Your client receives the maximum income tax deduction allowed by law for charitable contributions, greater than the deduction to a private foundation for certain gifts.
  5. You will find our rates are competitive with other community foundations, and our gifts help support Yellow Springs and Miami Township along with your area of interest.

Types of Assets

Your clients might be surprised by the ways they can give, and the financial and tax benefits available. We have significant experience accepting:

  • retirement plan assets, such as IRAs, 401(k)s, 403(b)s
  • publicly traded stock and closely-held stock
  • cash and cryptocurrency
  • mutual funds
  • life insurance

Fund Advisors

The Foundation offers personalized assistance to ensure your fund’s investment in the community is maximized. We provide 24-hour, secure log-in access to view activity such as grants and earnings, quarterly reports, etc. to make your job easy.
