These two simple phrases have guided CEOs and Wealth Advisors Zac Larson and Corey Schmidt for nearly 40 combined years, both with their clients and in their personal lives. It has been the cornerstone of their practice and now it’s the inspiration for their new name – IntentGen Financial Partners.
As an independent practice of Thrivent Financial, IntentGen Financial Partners retains the best that Thrivent offers, but can now offer new ways to serve their clients and their community in ways even greater than before. By empowering people to make wise financial decisions, IntentGen Financial Partners helps clients plan intentionally and live generously in order to maximize the impact on their families and their communities.
Empower people to live with greater purpose.
Live your purpose: Retire sooner. Travel the world. Start a business. Give more. College for kids. Change careers. Volunteer. Disney with grandkids. Time for others… Time for yourself!
Please join us, our clients, and the community to support the IntentGen Financial Partners “Compassion Counts” initiative, as we collaborate to send more than $40,000 to local non-profit organizations.
We are rallying together to support the people and organizations that are serving those in need, in the heart of our communities, during the Coronavirus pandemic. Although there are heroes working everywhere right now, we’ve identified four local organizations that need our support at this time to care for those who are often forgotten.
The Compassion Counts initiative will magnify your personal generosity by providing matching donations up to $20,000 in total to these four organization. Now is your time! Compassion Counts Campaign runs through May 15th, 2020.
Please consider giving to one or more and as much as you can. If you want to give from your Donor Advised Fund or from your IRA as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD), then just send your gift to one of our four designated organizations below and let us and the organization know so we can make sure to match it.
IntentGen Financial Partners will match $1/$1 up to $100 per donor, up to $5,000 per organization.
As a mission-driven organization, Project HELP is committed to improving the lives of children and families. Project HELP's mission is to prevent child abuse and create safe and healthy families by empowering parents, nurturing families, and strengthening communities. These needs are more pressing than ever during the Coronavirus pandemic, and we’re grateful to acknowledge that IntentGen Financial Partners is providing matching donations to assist Project Help as we extend our services.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Loaves & Fishes is seeing an increase in those needing help. The organization has adapted their grocery delivery model to offer curbside delivery during this unprecedented time. This modified system uses less people to keep clients, volunteers, and staff as safe as possible. Loaves & Fishes also continues to make home deliveries to low-income senior centers. These are some of our most isolated clients. Additionally, Loaves & Fishes has seen the number of people seeking help at our Compass Church satellite in Bolingbrook triple. Loaves & Fishes is also providing food for a number of other nonprofit partners focused on those who are homeless. *Use “IntentGen” in company name for donation to be matched.
For 35 years, DuPagePads' proven solution of housing, coupled with support services and employment opportunities has assisted more than 32,000 on the journey from homelessness to stability. DuPagePads is a journey that begins with an extended hand, an affirming voice, and a trusting soul that advocates undividedly for each individual. Homelessness is not a disease, it is not a culture, and it does not harm selectively. Instead it is a time in someone's life that is desperate, sometimes dark, and often without understanding for the sequence of events that brought a person or family to be homeless. *Use “IntentGen” in company name and select IntentGen Financial Partners in the "What inspired you to donate today?" box for donation to be matched.
With COVID-19, things have drastically changed, and the organization has had to pivot to ensure the safety of its staff and, most importantly, the homeless guests who call Hesed House home.
"This vulnerability that we feel now in the midst of this crisis is a vulnerability that the residents of our shelter feel every single day. The rest of us are feeling our world fall apart - many individuals were already there," Ryan Dowd, Executive Director. Not only did Hesed House create a third shelter space in their warehouse to help with social distancing, but they now have temporarily relocated all of their shelters into hotels to allow for much-needed shelter-in-place. Ryan ends daily videos stating, "we'll get through this, and we'll get through this by caring about the most vulnerable.”
