Professional Advisors

As a professional advisor, you build your client relationships on trust and mutual respect. The same is true for our relationships with our athletes, guides, and donors.

As a professional advisor, your clients have come to rely on your expertise to guide them through some of the most important decisions in their lives.

Sharing with your clients how they can maximize their philanthropic impact and minimize taxes is a great way to expand your role as a trusted advisor, deepen your client relationships, and build connections with the next generation.

NWABA understands the value of these trusted relationships and is here to help. If your clients are interested in charitable giving, either for their tax advantages, or because of a personal passion, please know NWABA will care for your clients as much as you do.

We understand philanthropic, financial, and estate goals are unique to each individual. Whether your client prefers our role to be large or small, we are prepared.

We understand that your clients may have reservations about sharing their intentions with us. We make a solemn promise to you and your clients that we will not communicate excessively or pry into the specifics of their gift. We simply want to say thank you and offer these special donors a sense of the impact of their gift, long before the gift arrives.

NWABA development staff can work individually with each Champion to gain an understanding of their interests and how best they prefer their gift to be used. Are they passionate about a specific program? Would they like their gift placed in an endowed fund or prefer that it be used how, when, and where it is most needed?

We love it when our Champions join us at an athletic event to learn more about our programs and what we envision for the future of the organization. This interaction provides them the opportunity to learn about all the ways their gifts can benefit the athletes in our community.

Relationships are built on trust and we would be honored to have the opportunity to support you and your clients.
