The new service offers an inspired blend of customized philanthropic advising to help local and national clients leverage their resources to strengthen relationships, bridge generations, and build lasting legacies that make a difference.
Sylvia R. Hampton, president and CEO of Hampton Bates, comments, "Our clients have enormous reach and power, and we want to help them use it for good."
