Sustaining your philanthropic mission

At Synovus, we're honored to serve those who contribute to their communities. Whatever your charitable focus may be — education, health care, religious, cultural, or social services — we can help you address your challenges and sustain your mission.

Attracting donors

Our experienced professionals can help you develop a planned giving program to grow your donor base. They'll work closely with you to make sure you have the right infrastructure and policies in place. They can also provide technical advice for complex estate gift planning.

Investment management — Balancing growth goals and operating costs

Donors expect their contributions to support your work in the community. You must also meet expenses and funding needs to sustain your organization. We can help you develop a personalized, comprehensive investment program to generate operating income and asset growth.

Monitoring investment managers

In today's complex markets, your organization may choose to rely on multiple investment managers. Our manager research team provides due diligence on a wide range of leading managers and investment vehicles from separate accounts to mutual funds. Our custody services ensure diligent oversight and meticulous reporting.

Planned giving — Easing the administrative burden

Managing planned giving is time-consuming. Our specialists can oversee day-to-day management so you can spend more time generating new gifts. You can rely on our extensive knowlege of tax and trust law, combined with sound practical experience, to develop policies and administer the full range of planned giving programs.
