Community Impact Celebration

We had a successful turnout at our Community Impact Celebration last month. Several dignitaries and special guests joined us to celebrate the results of our Economic Impact Survey. In addition, our new CEO, Marcia Mintz, urged the attendees to Learn, Get Involved, Volunteer and Support BGCMP Financially. In fact, every $1 invested in BGCMP generates $18.22 in positive benefits to the community. To see the full report, click here.

Planned Giving

 Begin Your Philanthropic Journey

Experts say we will soon “drive” self-driving cars that can take us where we want to go while allowing us to sit back and sleep, play chess, read or do anything else that helps us relax. 

While that may be the future, most people are not ready to turn over control and trust self-driving cars. Can a self-driving car get you where you want to go? Will it stay on the road? How will it handle something unexpected?

When it comes to our future and the safety and care of loved ones, many of us would not relinquish control to a car that was on autopilot. What if it did not work as intended? Yet, when it comes to our finances, healthcare and our estate plan, many of us have freely chosen to give up control to a system that is random and ill-equipped to make the kind of decisions we can best make ourselves. Under state law, if you are incapacitated or pass way without a plan someone else will make important decisions that could affect you and your loved ones.
