Creating Philanthropy Using Noncash Assets



Guest Speakers: Rod Riggins, CFA, CAP; The Dallas Foundation &

Nancy Jones, President/CEO at the North Texas Community Foundation


Many people have heard about community foundations, but do financial advisors really know how their clients can benefit from working with one? Come learn from two local community foundations, the North Texas Community Foundation and The Dallas Foundation. Hear from Nancy Jones and Rod Riggins how liquid assets can be the best tools for philanthropic planning and how community foundations are set up to help. The speakers will present solutions to complex charitable planning dilemmas and offer a cross-disciplinary approach that touches on legal, tax, investment and financial planning techniques. 


Topics discussed in this session include: Noncash assets statistics;  Donor-advised funds;  Comparison of Giving Vehicles;  Benefits of using Community Foundations;  and case studies. 



Rod Riggins joined The Dallas Foundation in October, 2015 in a new position – educating and assisting advisors with how they help their clients achieve charitable goals.  Rod moved from the wealth management industry, where he worked with advisors and wealthy families for more than 25 years.  Rod is a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP), a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), and earned an M.B.A. from Southern Methodist University and a B.A. from Vanderbilt University. “It is the time of my life and career for me to give back to the community.   Working with advisors for the benefit of their clients and the charities that they support is an awesome way to give.”





Since Nancy E. Jones took the helm as President/CEO at the North Texas Community Foundation in 2009, its assets have more than doubled to more than $275 million. During that time, more than 12,000 grants and scholarships have been awarded in excess of $106 million at the local, regional and national levels.  Nancy is a nationally-prominent leader in the development of community foundations across the U.S. She previously served as the founding president of the Community Foundation of Abilene, building it from an initial base of $750,000 to $80 million in endowed assets. Nancy was appointed in 1997 by then-Governor George Bush to serve on the Board of Regents of the Texas Tech University System. She has served on the Board of Directors of the Council on Foundations, and currently serves on the Community Foundation National Marketing Action Team.
