Our missions is to fulfill yours
Wealth management and insurance planning services and solutions for nonprofits and endowments
Non-profits and endowments have a mission to do good in the world – to make a difference for those they serve. Stewards of these organizations not only have a fiduciary duty to their donors and endowments, but often have unique financial requirements and operating guidelines that call for thoughtful planning and advice. Be it sustainability, rewarding highly valued team members, or simply advancing the cause, we’re here to help.
Not-for-profit entities need to attract, retain and reward key executives and operational employees just like for-profit companies. In addition, many have endowments that must be sustainable while also providing support for the organization’s missions. Let us help you make intelligent investments today to shape tomorrow with our traditional investment advisory and management services, or learn more about our impact-minded ESG Investment Solution.
BaldwinClarke’s investment advisory services are designed to assist boards and investment committees in maintaining sustainable endowments to support operating requirements and its charitable purpose. For those interested, we also focus on recognizing the qualitative and quantitative benefits that sustainable investing has as either a standalone strategy or as a component of a more traditional investment approach.

Life insurance can be a valuable tool for donor’s to leverage their charitable gifts. BaldwinClarke has extensive experience in charitable gift planning for high net worth families. We can assist your fundraising team by exploring how life insurance strategies can enhance their efforts.
Executive Benefit Planning
Charitable entities cannot prosper without good leadership. In our experience the best leaders not only have the executive skills to run an organization, but also are effective in community outreach and in fundraising, even if only indirectly. These men and women are hard to find and harder to keep. An executive benefit plan can help tie them to the organization for years.
- A bespoke plan design tailored to your organization’s unique circumstances, rather than fitting your company into ‘’a plan”.
- Customized plans for each key employee’s specific situation whenever possible
- Plan funding strategies consistent with your organization’s financial requirements
- Detailed projections of plan impact on cash flow and taxes.

Key Person Insurance Planning
The loss of a key person can have a dramatic impact on any not-for-profit, especially if she or he is the “Face” of the organization in the community. But, no matter the role, life insurance can buffer the impact of their loss.
