Philanthropy and Retirement Planning:
A Good Fit

Thoughts about retirement—when to begin, what it will look like, and how to prepare for it—are a matter of perspective. Planning for a retirement that is several years away is significantly different from living in retirement with your career years behind you.

Whatever your planning needs and current situation, there are ways to combine philanthropy with retirement planning to help you reach important goals and objectives.
