Ways We Work With Your Clients

Providing personalized services that enhance the act of giving is the hallmark of CICF's partnership with individuals and families. Our goal is to make your clients' philanthropy personal, effective and more enjoyable, and our staff is committed to working with you and your clients to make sure that happens.

Charitable Planning: We will help your clients develop a philanthropic strategy that reflects their unique vision, family history and values, and also show them how to align those values with their giving interests.

Community Knowledge:  CICF has been awarding effective grants for more than 90 years. As a result, we have an in-depth knowledge of virtually every not-for-profit organization in the area. We gladly offer advice and share information on the needs and opportunities in our community.

Family Engagement:  More people are formalizing the way they incorporate family members into their charitable giving. CICF staff have many years of experience working with families to establish or pass-on legacies and make philanthropy a positive experience for old and young alike.

Administration and Governance:  CICF handles all the administrative, compliance and legal aspects associated with your clients' charitable giving to give them the freedom to enjoy the act of being charitable and not burden with operating a foundation.
