Sixty-six percent of wealthy individuals feel that professional advisors could and should give them philanthropy advice. Professional advisors who help clients with philanthropy advice note it can be good for their bottom line with higher client satisfaction and raised retention rates.

Research shows that high net worth clients give 17 times more to charity if their professional advisor talks to them about philanthropy, so speaking confidently to your clients about their philanthropy during your career could unlock far more funds for local charities than any amount of charity cake sales and sponsored runs you might be roped in to!
