For those to whom much is given, much is expected.

As an athlete, your most recognized gift to the world is your unparalleled ability to master a sport. But perhaps your most treasured gift is the legacy you can create through your philanthropic giving. Giving back has become a mantra for many athletes and entertainers. The desire to give back can be a personal motivation due to an experience you, a friend or a family member has had or it can be motivated by wanting to pay forward your good fortune to those who are less fortunate. So how can you reconcile your desire to do good things with the demands of your work and life? How can you ensure that the projects you fund have the impact that you desire?

Social Legends assists clients in mastering the art of giving. We work with athletes to:

  • Explore and define the vision for your philanthropy. We help you uncover your philanthropic values and create a mission for your giving.
  • Create a strategic charitable plan that addresses your personal legacy, delivers the impact that you want to impart and maximizes your tax benefits.
  • Help you research and select the most worthy beneficiaries and organizations that align with your philanthropic values and ideas.
  • Provide public relations support to advance your goals and generate interest in your ideas.
  • Evaluate requests for support, assess impacts, negotiate grant terms and reporting requirements, conduct site visits and meetings with organizations  on your behalf, conduct post-grant evaluation and track results.
  • Implement your own personal charitable events including fundraisers, programs and scholarship funds.
  • Develop a long term family strategy that may include engagement of children/family members in philanthropic work, wealth transition planning, family coaching and mentoring of heirs.
  • Coordinate your personal, professional, and philanthropic goals to leverage greater success and impact in all areas.
  • Create opportunities to engage with non-profits and philanthropists to create innovative solutions for social change.
  • Coordinate giving with other philanthropists to increase size and scale of impact.
