ABOUT QUIET LEGACY
You Inspire us Every Day.
We show up to work each and every day inspired and enriched by the time we spend with our incredible client family.
Some people talk about changing the world.
We help you do it.
Quiet Legacy was founded with the belief that values-based financial planning is all too rare. Much of the industry is too focused on product rather than planning. We strive to make a difference in your planning by starting with explorations of your personal values. Then, and only then, do we look at solutions to fit your situation. Our clients are volunteers, change-makers and givers who are deeply involved in communities, and are often charitable in nature.
We believe that it is just as important to live and work within our own value framework as an organization. For us, it is important that we work with clients who are community-minded and charitable towards others. We prioritize the health and wellbeing of our employees and their families. Every member of our firm dedicates a half-day each week to walking in nature. This practice helps us maintain our creativity, mental health and focus. Each of us is committed to a significant amount of volunteer time within our communities.
Our work also extends to services for charitable organizations. We support programs with donor talks, charitably-owned life Insurance Audits and custom prints of Ryan’s book, Driven By Purpose.
Together, with our clients we’ve been part of almost $40 million in current and future charitable impact through our financial and estate planning work. We can’t think of a better metric to measure the success of our business.
