We know generosity can look different to everyone based on their goals and values. That's why we're passionate about providing you with a variety of ways that can help you maximize your impact – such as leveraging opportunities through your family, church or community.
You can also maximize your impact by incorporating giving strategies into your overall financial plan. Strategies like qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) or donor-advised funds can help you financially support the organizations and causes close to your heart.
Let’s talk about how you can maximize your impact while also incorporating charitable giving into your financial plan.
"There's never enough if we measure against the world. But if you look the other direction, there's always someone who has it worse or has less. Generosity is the anecdote to that. Whether we use our money, time or skills – living generously helps balance 'never enough' and 'more than enough.'" – Zac Larson

Thank you to all of our community members and clients for making "Party with a Purpose" such a success! We had 11 nonprofit organizations present and more than 175 RSVPs for the event. Through everyone's generosity, plus a match of $55,000 from us at IntentGen, there is a total impact of $110,000 going to these local organizations to help strengthen our amazing community.
We want to thank our clients and the entire community we serve for the support of the IntentGen Financial Partners “Compassion Counts” initiative. Each of the four organizations, DuPage Pads, Hesed House, Loaves & Fishes, Strong Families, reached the goal we set forth to earn our $5,000 match, and with our $20,000 added on to all the individual gifts, there is nearly $80,000 going to these incredible local non-profits exceeding our goal by nearly 100%!
This money was used directly to support organizations serving those in need, in the heart of our communities.
