We know from experience that giving doesn’t just happen. Significant financial planning has allowed our clients to be even more generous to those places that are important to them.

With the help of its generous clients and the Naperville community, IntentGen Financial Partners, a Naperville-based financial planning firm, raised around $80,000 for four local charities through its successful “Compassion Counts” campaign.

The firm’s $20,000 initiative, which launched on May 1 and ended on May 15, supported the following area charities: Project Help, Loaves and Fishes, DuPagePADS and Hesed House. IntentGen matched all donations up to $100 per donor and $5,000 per organization made during that two-week period.

The overwhelming response netted 427 donations that came from the firm’s clients and the local community. Zac Larson and Corey Schmidt, founding partners of IntentGen, explained that the focus was not on raising a large amount of funds from a few donors, but to connect as many people in the community as possible. That in the end, would count towards something big.

“We know from experience that giving doesn’t just happen. Significant financial planning has allowed our clients to be even more generous to those places that are important to them,” Schmidt said.

Larson noted, “We are also grateful to those who have stepped up and given so much.”

Project Help is one nonprofit recipient that benefited from the initiative's campaign. The nonprofit's mission is to prevent child abuse and create safe and healthy families by empowering parents, nurturing families, and strengthening communities. Peggy McGuire, director of Child and Family Development with YWCA Metropolitan Chicago that oversees Project Help, was grateful for the much-needed donations as her families continue to get virtual services.

“With our main fundraiser being canceled in May, I was very concerned about the viability of this program, especially at this crucial time,” McGuire said. “I am forever grateful to this Compassion Counts Campaign and what it has given us. We’ve been able to raise over $17,000 in two short weeks thanks to the generosity we received. This program changes families, keeps children safe and, ultimately, affects the community.”
