Our Approach

As a complement to our mission-based approach to managing your investments, we offer guidance and support for executing key strategies in the areas critical to your organization's mission, such as:

  • Community development
  • Donor engagement
  • Collective impact initiatives
  • Fine-tuning your value proposition
  • Growing your endowment
  • Cultivating strong board leadership

Your U.S. Trust team is selected based on your nonprofit's unique needs and will always include a specialist in philanthropy. We can work with your volunteer and staff leadership to tailor strategies for your specific mission and growth goals. After understanding your strategic priorities, we define areas and specific projects where our team can provide one-on-one advice, guidance, workshops, and coaching.
