President Ron Ware Co-Authors Book to Inspire Charitable Giving
Ron Ware, president of Wealth Impact Partners, has co-authored You Can Do More that Matters – a unique guide that serves as a “how to” for individuals and families who hope to discover and act upon their excess wealth (which most of us do have, even though we may not know it yet!)
For more than 20 years, Ron and co-author Greg Hammond have helped successful individuals, families, and business owners enhance their financial clarity and confidence to provide the life they’ve always wanted, the legacy they desire for their loved ones, and more meaningful support for the charitable purposes they care about most.
The information, advice, and illustrations found in You Can Do More That Matters are drawn from their substantial base of experience and expertise in financial and estate planning. The result is a highly readable book that educates and inspires readers about how to achieve their own personal “more that matters.”
“Many people spend more time and care planning their vacations than they spend on their financial and estate planning,” explain Ron and Greg in chapter four of the book. “They pore over travel guides and find the best rates online, all in anticipation of a week or two in their future. Probably because of our human impulses, planning for short-term fun can trump long-term gain. With the future uncertain, risks to be managed, a retirement for which we fear we may not have saved enough, and worse yet, death and taxes, many of us understandably lack the requisite enthusiasm and courage to address this area of planning with commitment, energy, and urgency. If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there. To plot a course for a significant legacy, you first need a plan for yourself. Only then will you have the confidence and clarity to plan for others.”
You Can Do More That Matters helps readers understand why and how to create a practical and meaningful life and legacy plan that includes making a powerful impact on the charitable organizations and causes they care about most.
Nonprofits and Financial Advisors use book as transformational tool
Nonprofit organizations and financial advisors face distinct challenges in today’s economic environment. Charitable, nonprofit, and faith-based organizations must change the way people perceive their ability to give – both their willingness and their sense of being financially capable to give more.
In the financial realm, of those that could and should, only about 20-25% of people take action on advanced tax and financial strategies. When planning is only about money, death, and taxes, it lacks the motivators necessary to move people to action.
In You Can Do More That Matters, nonprofits and advisors have found a transformational tool that helps them connect with and tangibly benefit their donors and clients.
For example, nonprofits can use the book to inspire donors in conjunction with annual fund, capital campaign, or legacy giving appeals. Advisors can use the book to prompt meaningful conversations on life and legacy with existing clients and to engage prospective clients. Advisors also can sponsor the book in support of a local nonprofit to demonstrate commitment to the community.
You Can Do More That Matters can be purchased in bulk quantities at a special discount for nonprofits and professionals who want to make it available as a resource to donors and clients. A company logo and customized forward or book band also can be added.
