As a financial consultant with decades of experience, Jill McAlpine understands the multiple benefits of charitable giving. She knows it strengthens her business, enriches her personal and professional life, and benefits her community – so giving is a subject she always addresses with clients. “Once they’ve addressed their broader estate and financial plan, I talk about their giving,” says McAlpine. “Is there anything they would like to do for their community – to address an issue of concern or for a favourite charity?”
