Working with Greater Horizons

Who We Are

Created in 2004, Greater Horizons is a leading provider of charitable giving services, offering client-focused solutions to a wide range of philanthropic clients, including individuals, families, companies and community foundations. We are powered by the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation.

We work with professional advisors (wealth managers, financial planners, accountants, insurance professionals, attorneys and other advisors) across the country to maximize their clients’ giving.

What Sets Us Apart from Our Peers

Expertise

We know that donors – your clients – set up donor-advised funds and other charitable giving accounts because of you, the advisor they trust. Our job is to arm you with succinct, effective solutions for your clients and future generations that will carry on charitable legacies.

Beyond donor-advised funds, we offer a comprehensive platform of charitable tools. We help donors navigate all of their options, which might include scholarship funds, designated funds or field of interest funds.

Service

We provide world-class service to all our donors, no matter the size of their account. Donors have access to a team of professionals dedicated to promptly answering calls and emails. Donors are able to conduct their giving in a confidential and secure environment.

Flexibility

Giving should be easy. Donors like to use their donor-advised funds for all of their giving, and they do not want to be constrained by unnecessary limitations and minimums. We support charitable giving at all levels. We recognize that every gift, no matter the size – whether $25 or $25 million – will make a difference.

  • No minimum initial contribution.
  • No minimum additional contribution.
  • No minimum grant amount.
  • No minimum account balance required to name an external investment manager.
  • No limit to the number of successor advisors or charitable beneficiaries.

Succession

Donors expect us to be forward-thinking. We think carefully with donors and their advisors about succession planning, so future generations can continue to give in perpetuity. We are governed by an independent board and are not connected to a commercial enterprise that can be sold, merged or dissolved. We will exist to serve generations to come.
