The Community Foundation of New Jersey and Goldman Sachs were pleased to host a variety of professional advisors from across New Jersey today for a discussion with Stacy Eastland, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs and one of the country’s top wealth advisors, who shared thoughts on the best planning “desserts” that won’t bust the tax diet.
Our partnerships with professional advisors are an important relationship for connecting charitable clients to issues and areas in need. Donor-established funds offer generous tax benefits, provide philanthropic assets for our communities, and enable ongoing giving.
