Legacies For All

We believe legacy-building isn’t just for an elite few—it’s for everyone. Through the charitable arm of WealthCounsel, WealthCounsel Stands, we hope to empower local communities to create their own legacies by creating a lasting impact that extends beyond document drafting.

The charities we’ve chosen to work with this year pursue causes close to our heart—building strong communities, empowering individuals using technology, promoting education, and accessible legal services. As a company, these beliefs are what guide us in not only how we serve our members, but also how we strive to serve our greater communities through WealthCounsel Stands. This year the four charities we’ve selected to work with are Girls Who Code, The Road Home, Kids in Need Foundation, and Legal Aid at Work.

Our charity this quarter

WealthCounsel is starting this year off with an emphasis on education. In law, continuing legal education is vital for attorneys to not only maintain their licensure, but also to stay up to date on changes in current law and legal precedent, as well as being able to offer clients innovative legal strategy. That’s why education is so important to us at WealthCounsel. In addition to offering comprehensive online workshops, forums, and learning materials for our members, WealthCounsel is excited to announce our new educational event for attorneys looking to open their own estate planning practice (or add estate planning to their current practice): Estate Planning Essentials.

In the same spirit, WealthCounsel Stands will also be focusing on education this quarter by working with the Kids in Need Foundation. In the US today, more than 15 million children live in poverty and are often at an academic disadvantage, lacking the support and resources needed to succeed in school. In order to help low-income children have a better chance at academic success and break the cycle of poverty, the Kids in Need Foundation provides free school supplies to students in some of the most challenged communities across the country—including those who have faced devastation from natural disasters and storms. Through their four main programs, Kids in Need Foundation has delivered school supplies to 200,000 teachers and 6.2 million students.

How we’re taking a stand

Along with a monetary donation, WealthCounsel will conduct two school supply drives; one at our main office in Utah and another during the WealthCounsel company retreat this February. We encourage both WealthCounsel members and employees to give donations of their own or send school supply boxes directly to Kids in Need Foundation. Learn more about how you can give here.

This is just the beginning, but we’re excited to get to work and stand together.
