A few words for and about attorneys, accountants and other financial advisors…

Major charitable gifts, especially planned gifts, often have significant financial and legal ramifications requiring the advice of trained professionals.  Braille Institute is proud of its partnerships and collaborations with an array of what we term Professional Advisors: Attorneys (estate, tax, real estate, family, and general); CPAs; Insurance Professionals; Financial Planners; Investment Managers; Trust Officers; Wealth Counselors; Gift Planners; Stock Brokers; and Real Estate Professionals.

In all matters related to charitable giving, Braille Institute believes in a strong donor focus and in doing what is in the best interest of each individual donor.

We encourage Professional Advisors with an interest in supporting Braille Institute to contact us to explore gifting opportunities which may be beneficial to donors and to Braille Institute.

Our planned giving staff is privileged to provide complimentary technical gift planning support including personalized consultations, calculations, and presentations for donors and their legal or financial counsel. We are also happy to provide referrals to external estate planning attorneys and accountants with expertise in charitable giving when a donor or his or her counsel is considering a planned gift for Braille Institute.  For more information, please contact our Department of Philanthropy.
