The desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes. 

What does this mean for you?

Philanthropy allows people to carry on a legacy that was left for them or to give to causes that will benefit people, places, or things that have had a profound influence on their lives. Charitable opportunities and desires often tie closely into your life story, so Petra's role is not to tell you where to give or even that you should give. We simply want to help you give in the most effective way, with tax and estate planning as the vehicle to attain that goal, all fueled by your desires.
