“Bill High has been a visionary for stewardship and giving for many years. He has always asked the hard questions and challenged each one of us to think beyond ourselves and the status quo. God has called us to align with His heart for extravagant generosity and I’m excited for the launch of the Signatry to provide an avenue to live out this alignment. Let us all continue to ask if there is more that can be done for His Kingdom, and when we find opportunities, be willing to step out boldly.”

Warren Buffett’s Missed Opportunity

3 months ago By Evan Lange

When it comes to charitable giving, it often seems like the world’s wealthiest individuals have it figured out. With so many assets to manage, these donors know how to support charitable causes while capitalizing on the tax benefits of the giving process, right? Unfortunately, not all get it right.

There are important differences, when it comes to tax benefits, that all donors and advisors should consider.
