UniversalGiving® Wealth Giving Services
LIFESTYLE & FAMILY ADVISING
UniversalGiving® guides you to incorporate giving as part of your lifestyle. We provide 1-1 advising; group family counseling; webinars; and group sessions on the following topics:
Wealth comes with complex dynamics. Even though someone has monetary wealth, they may face Spiritual Poverty™. Spiritual Poverty™ is where someone feels low, depressed, unstable and unhappy. On the UniversalGiving® website, we engage members in volunteering. Volunteering helps solve Spiritual Poverty™ by healing through giving back. Please note that Spiritual Poverty™ can affect us all, not only people of wealth.
We believe volunteering helps solve Spiritual Poverty™. We encourage you to find volunteer opportunities on UniversalGiving® platform and get involved and give back. Volunteering can heal Spiritual Poverty™. We want you to feel positive happy and fulfilled. We love you and look forward to seeing you!
Please see our volunteer opportunities at our home office located in San Francisco.
We will advise you on the best giving structure: Direct giving, foundation, donor-advised funds
We will listen to and assess your vision and goals, helping you determine the best strategy to scale your giving efforts. This can be as a high-level individual giver; as the head of a foundation; or as the leader of your family foundation or giving efforts.
We will help connect and introduce you to communities of like-minded high net-worth donors.
