Churches & Non-Profits

The non-profit world is a unique and often neglected group when in comes to financial matters.  The laws and vehicles available to them are also unique and typically require some specialized expertise that can be hard to find. Wells Wealth Strategies has experience working with churches, seminaries, K-12 schools both public and private, missionary organizations, and charitable groups, and we are familiar with the unique opportunities available to each of these entities.

Pastors and Clergy

Pastors in particular have unique opportunities when it comes to financial planning that most investors do not have access to you, most notably regarding housing allowance, and the choice to opt out of social security.  We believe it is important that pastors have proper guidance from a trusted advisor before making decisions that could have long-term implications.
